Reading My Way Towards Education

The Great Gatsby

My name is Michaelyn Hoffman and I am in the Early Childhood Education program at Valdosta State University I've decided to work with children because I believe they all have the power to change the world.  I remember loving school and I want to help other children love it as much as I did.   I have a huge passion for reading and I try to read as often as I can.  Books are an amazing way to learn so many interesting things.  My love for reading came from reading books before bed with my mother and Grandfather.  I hope that I can take my love of books and help someone else fall in love with them and cherish them for the rest of their life.

I was born in Schenectady, New York and moved to Athens, Georgia when I was seven.  I have two older sisters, Annette and Nicole, who have always supported me.   My parents are also a huge part of my life.  They have always pushed me to try harder and do something meaningful with my life.  My family means the world to me and I couldn't have made it here without them.  I am also blessed to have the greatest niece in the world.  Carly Ann is such an important part of my life.

My husband Jamie and I got married on October 4th, 2008.  He has a mechanical engineering degree from Georgia Southern University and we live in Thomasville Georgia.  Although we don't have any children, our lives are centered around our three dogs, Bandit, Bella, and Daisy.

I have a lot of hobbies that I enjoy outside of school.  Obviously, I love reading, but I also love to  watch football.  My favorite team is the Georgia Bulldogs!  I also love baseball and root for the New York Yankees.  I love shopping, cleaning, and cooking new recipes.  I also love traveling and have been to fun places like the Cayman Islands, Mexico, Belize, and Honduras.  I have also been the the Mayan ruins of Tulum.  Traveling can be an amazing experience and is something I hope to do more in the future.

Here are a few websites that I think can be beneficial to parents and children:

My Favorite Website is called SporcleThis website has thousands of quizzes that can really help in certain areas.  Not only is it fun but it's educational as well!

Another website that can be beneficial is SoftSchools.  This website has printable pages in all areas that parents can give to their children.  It is a great way to encourage them to study outside of school.
