        Hi!  Welcome to my website "Barnyard Buddies". My name is Michelle Rentz. In, December 2007, I graduated from Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College in Tifton, Georgia with my Associates of Science Degree. Currently I am a Junior at  Valdosta State University. I am an  Early Childhood Education major in the Early Childhood and Special Education Department. Before deciding on becoming a teacher, I was owner-operator of Rentz Daycare in Sparks, Georgia for 11 years. Becoming a teacher has been a life long dream. I enjoy working with children and hope to make a difference in some child's life.                                                                                                     


    I was born and raised in Nashville, Georgia. I graduated from Berrien County High School in 1989. After graduation, I got married and moved to Sparks, Georgia  where I now live with my husband of 19 years  Danny, and our two son's Justin and Zachary.  Justin is a  senior at Cook County High School and Zachary is in the 5th grade at Cook Elementary School.  When I graduate I would like to teach 1st grade in Cook County. 

    I have worked with children of all ages.  I have learned a lot from my experience of owning a daycare
and substitute teaching. I enjoy working in the yard and swimming. I love to spend time with my  family and  just hanging out. I  like to sew and work on different types of  arts and crafts. I  enjoy  watching the Atlanta  Braves  play baseball. I am also a big fan of the Georgia Bulldogs.
