    My name is Natalie Whitehurst.  I am a college junior attending Valdosta State University and I am majoring in Early Childhood Education.  I have always wanted to be a teacher and make a difference in the lives of children.  I have worked with many children over the years, babysitting and hosting peer faciliation groups and I think that being in the field of education is perfect for me.  I took a class in high school that focused on being a future educator.  I actually got to observe a kindergarten classroom and I absolutely loved it! 

    I grew up in Columbus, Georgia and spent most of my memorable years there.  In high school I was involved in many afterschool activities such as the Beta Club, and National Art Honor Society.  I love working with creative arts, and I plan to incorporate these activities into my classroom.  I took many art classes in high school, enough to earn an arts seal on my diploma.  My high school was one of the top in the state of Georgia.  Columbus High School won many awards, and I loved the opportunities that it gave me.  I come from a large family of two sisters, and one brother.  One of my interests is cake decorating.  In high school I took classes from a mentor, and I learned many different ways to decorate a cake.  Some websites that I love looking at are those developed by Wilton.  Wilton shows many different cake decorating ideas.   

    I have found many useful websites that any teacher could use in their classroom.  The Scholastic website has many different activities that can be encorporated into any lesson.  Teachers and parents can use this website to find enrichment materials for the classroom and at home.  Another website that I have found to be useful is A to Z Teacher Stuff.  Not only does this website have neat activities for the classroom, it also has tips and general information for teachers.
