Megan's Sounds of Learning Success

       My name is Megan Adams, and I am 21 years old.  I'm a junior at Valdosta State University, and I am starting my first semester of teacher observations in the Early Childhood and Reading Education program.  I plan on graduating in December of 2008.  I am from St. Marys, GA, where I graduated from Camden County High School in 2003.

       My main hobby is playing flute and piccolo in several student ensembles.  I am in the VSU Blazin' Brigade marching band, the concert band, and the pep band for the basketball games.  I've been playing for 11 years and marching for 6 years.  As part of my love of band, I am president of VSU's chapter of TAU BETA SIGMA, national honorary band sorority.  Some of my best friends are sisters and fellow marching band members.  I am also a member SIGMA ALPHA IOTA, international music fraternity for women.

        One of my other main interests is my pony, Phoenix.  He is almost one year old.  I bought him at an auction this summer when I visited Chincoteague Island, VA.  I board him out in Hahira, and I can't wait to start saddle-training him this summer. 

       Two websites I feel will be helpful to me as a teacher are the Florida Department of Education's "Strategies for Classroom Management" and Intervention Central's "Classic Ideas that Teachers can use to Diversify Classroom Instruction."  The Intervention Central
website as a whole provides a wide variety of resources for teachers, ranging from ways to use effective rewards to finding new ways to increase reading comprehension.
