am twenty-one years old and I live in Valdosta, Georgia. I have a
black, female Labrador Retriever named Bella. She is CKC registered and
she is going to have puppies in December! She knows a lot of tricks
like sit, lay down, fetch, stay, and shake hands. Recently, she has
been trained to play hide and seek using her sense of smell!
I am originally from Acworth,
you can see above, Acworth is very close to Atlanta. My parents live
there along with my younger sister Christina and
two younger doggie brothers, Jasper and Toby.
to being a full time student, I am also a firefighter for
Lowndes County Fire/Rescue. The district I'm a member of is #7
cover much of the eastern part of Lowndes Co. from Inner Perimeter Rd.
to the Echols Co. line. We respond to calls for service that include
wildfires, vehicle fires, emergency medical calls, car accidents and
many other calls such as storm related incidents, etc. A website
that I find very interesting which includes many stories about fire
deparments all around the United States is Firehouse.com.
One of my
favorite places to travel is to my grandparents' house at Kure
Beach, NC. It is a
beautiful, small island off of the
North Carolina Coast. You have to go over a large bridge to get there.
There are really big houses right
on the beach which are all painted bright colors. There are no big hotels or busy
beach shops to block the
view of the beautiful ocean. It is a very quiet, beautiful island that
wish everyone could experience.
I have learned that teachers need a
lot of resources in helping them be effective teachers. One of my
favorite websites to visit that has many fun activities and lesson
plans is Scholastic.
Another website that I have found to be very helpful in making lesson
plans is the Georgia
Department of Education. There you can find many lesson plans and
all of the Georgia Standards.
