    Hello, my name is Mary Marie Carr. I am a junior at Valdosta State University.  I am pursuing a degree in Early Childhood Education.  I plan to graduate in the fall of 2005 with a bachelors degree.  I have always enjoyed being around children and I hope to teach pre-k or kindergarten one day.  It is a dream of mine to teach overseas for several years to experience different cultures.


I am originally from Nashville, Georgia but I currently reside in Hahira, Georgia with my husband, Bryan who is enlisted in the United States Air Force and is currently stationed at Moody Air Force Base.  While being married to Bryan I have had the opportunity to travel to Germany and live there for three months.  It was an awesome experience.  Besides living in Germany, I had the opportunity to travel Europe and England.

            When I am not working on homework or studying for an upcoming test I enjoy spending time with my friends, family, and especially my puppy Mimi.  Mimi is a teacup Chihuahua. She is three and half months old, one pound four ounces and acts just like a child.  Mimi has her own toys, baby blankets, and even sleeps with me at night.  Besides that she goes everywhere with me from the grocery store, to the hair salon, and back to Wal-Mart. Unfortunately, if the employees of Wal-Mart catch you with your puppy, they will ask you to leave!

Besides spending time with Mimi and other friends and family I enjoy doing art projects. When I graduate from Valdosta State and have my own classroom I will incorporate art projects into my lessons. I feel as though art is an important aspect of teaching.  It gives children a way of expressing themselves.
