Sunset at the Beach

Hi! My name is Marie Holtzclaw and I am orginally from Homerville, GA. I have lived in Valdosta for the past seven years. I am currently in my first professional block for teacher education at Valdosta State University. I have a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from VSU. Presently, I am a senior working on my second Bachelor of Science degree in the Early Childhood Education program. I am 25 years old and have been married for 3 years. I have a beautiful one year old son named Caleb. When I complete my degree I hope to continue with a Master's degree in School Counseling at Valdosta State, while teaching third or fourth grade in a public school system.

Fishing boat in the ocean

My family loves the beach. Our favorite trip during the summer is to Panama City Beach, Florida. We love to go deep sea fishing.  Another place of great fun for my family is Wild Adventures Theme Park. We love the roller coasters.  I love to travel and my favorite place that I have ever been is Lucerne, Switzerland.  Traveling is wonderful, but I also love to stay at home and curl up with a good book to read.

Behind the palm trees

 A couple sites that will help me in my quest to become a teacher are the Just 4 Teachers site, which provides help for each grade level, as well as tips for lesson plans, strategies, and tools for teaching. I also like Crayola Creativity Central, which provides arts and crafts activities, lesson plans, and other helpful information for teachers.
