Hello, my name is Melissa Rowe and I am from Tifton, Georgia.  I am currently in my first professional block for teacher education at Valdosta State University.  I am a junior and enrolled in the Early Childhood Education program.  My expected graduation date is December 2007.  When I complete my degree I hope to continue on with school and get my masters degree in mathematics. 


Hawaii
      


I have taught Pre-K for two years in Tifton at First United Methodist Church.  I fell in love with those children and decided that I needed to come back to school so that I would become a more effective teacher.  When I am not working or just hanging out with my two beautiful daughters I love to cook.  In fact, if I wasn't going to be a teacher I would love to become a chef.

In March of 2006 my family went on a cruise around the Hawaiian Islands on the Norwegian cruise ship the Pride of America.  The ship was beautiful and the islands were breathtaking.  One of the most interesting things that I saw on my visit to Hawaii was Mt. Kilauea which is located in Volcanoes National Park.  I hope to return to the islands again someday.

I have found two really good websites for teachers.  The first website is the teachers resource page on Scholastic which gives you a vast amount of lesson plans and ideas for teaching young children.  The second is the Public Broadcast Station's website because it offers lesson plans across all curriculums as well as fun activities for children.
