As a faculty member in the Department of Early Childhood and Reading Education at Valdosta State University, I teach courses in the College of Education related to early care and education.
TEACHING- During Spring 2002, I am teaching two undergraduate
courses in Professional Semester I: ECED 3190- Practicum I: Classroom
Management and Environmental Design: PreK - K and ECED 3400- Planning
for Instruction and Classroom Management. You may connect directly

I advise students who hold baccalaureate degrees in non teaching fields
who are seeking initial teacher certification or those wishing to add a
second field in ECE to a current Georgia teaching certificate. General
information about certification requirements for Early Childhood Education
can be found on the College of Education's Student Services' link,
I provide service to the early care and education community in South Georgia
by offering in-service sessions, workshops, and technical assistance to
schools and child care centers. As one of six certified trainers
in the State, I frequently deliver components of The
Program for Infant and Toddler Caregivers to childcare providers under
the auspices of the Infant Toddler Quality Initiative.

You Should Know
|Certain authors and illustrators have won the minds and hearts of children and adults for years. Their stories and pictures may be more familiar to us than their names. Two short lists of the creators of some of these enduring masterpieces are provided here.|
Reggio Emilia, Italy
|These two cities have made significant contributions to American education. The Whole Language Movement encourages the use of high quality children's literature during beginning literacy instruction. The Reggio Emilia Approach inspires early childhood educators to examine their image of the child and alter their way of being with, thinking about, and teaching young children.|
