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.
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
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.
