You're A Shining Star
Designed By: Rachel Carroll

Hi everyone!!  My name is Rachel Carroll and I am a junior at Valdosta State University.  I am currently studying Early Childhood Education and loving it!  I can not wait to graduate and get my own classroom full of little faces! I have lived in Valdosta, Georgia for eleven years now  and feel quite settled, but would love to get out and try new things and places.  I am very creative and have a BIG imagination!  I guess that's why I love teaching so much, I'm just a big kid myself!  I really enjoyed my elementary days in school and feel very honored to give the love I was shown back to the future students.  Some come on in, take a look around, and remember YOU are a Shining Star!

These pictures above are from my trip to Pasadina, California.  I was lucky enough to march in the Rosebowl Parade New Year's Day in 2006.  I went with the Lowndes High School Band.  It was a great trip and quite a journey.  It was also the first time in the history of the Rosebowl Parade that it rained.  Although we froze during the parade itself, the remainder of the trip was a blast!   The picture at the top of the page is of me outside of the famous Mann's Theatre in L.A.  It is Clark Gable's square.  The far left bottom picture is of Shirley Temple's square.  The middle of a friend and myself posing in front of John Travolta's star.  The last is of Kermit the Frog's star.  Some of my biggest hobbies are music and dance.  I am very artistic in rythm and movement.  I have danced for 6 years and played the flute for 10 years.  Another hobby of mine is interacting with children.  I know that it sounds like an odd hobby, but it is true.  Anyway that I can be helpful and have fun with children, I'll be there!  I am a Children's Ministry Leader at my church, House of Joy, and love teaching and creating imaginative play with the kids!
