    My name is Tiffany Beckett and I am a junior at Valdosta State University, studying in Early Childhood and Special Education Department. I was born and raised in Valdosta, Georgia by my parents Thomas and Sandy Beckett. I have an older brother who lives in Atlanta and works for Mizuno. The one thing I would want people to know about me is that I am a christian. When I was eleven years old I got saved while reading the book, "She Said Yes." I was reading in the book about a girl named Cassie who was seventeen years old. I read how she got saved and how she devoted her life to Christ. The book also tells about the shootings at Columbine High School, which Cassie was involved in. One of the gunmen found Cassie under a table in the library and asked if she believed in God. Cassie never hesitated but gave the gunmen a strong "Yes" and then he shot and killed her. I knew at that moment I wanted a faith like that. I wanted to boldly stand up for Christ just like Cassie did. So sitting on my bed I accepted Christ into my heart. For someone to know that I am a christian is the most important part of my being and sharing my faith with others.

    My faith in Christ has everything to do with why I want to be a teacher. When I was in eighth grade I started attending Morningside Baptist Church, where I still attend. When I was working in the church nursery I realized God's will for my life was to be a teacher. After realizing that was God's plan for my life I took every opportunity to work with children. I currently work at Precious Treasures in the two year old room. It is very clear that I enjoy working with children. I love to see the face of a child who finally understands a problem or learns how to tie his/her shoe for the first time. As a child there were some teachers who would not take the time to help me understand a subject. This is also another reason why I am very thankful God's will for my life is to be a teacher. I want to help the students who struggle and do not understand. I want to be the kind of teacher that when past students reflect on his/her old teachers, they think of me and know that I sparked encouragement and learning in them.
    I have many hobbies I enjoy. Some are helping with activities at my church such as: Vaction Bible School, Wild Game Supper, singing in the choir, and activities in my college group.  I love watching I Love Lucy, Andy Griffith, and The Cosby Show. I enjoy watching programs that are positive and have a good message. My room is even decorated with I Love Lucy, Andy Griffith, and Marilyn Monroe. I enjoy things from the past. I am a family oriented person and I enjoy being around them all. I also like to spend time with my friends and my dog Sunggles.

    I chose two informative websites that I believe are helpful for teachers. They are: Georgia Department of Education and ABC Teach. I really enjoyed these websites, especially ABC Teach. ABC Teach provides a wide variety of lesson plan ideas, activities, and ways to help students develop his/her vocabulary skills. Georgia Department of Education has detailed information about school improvement, standards to teach by, and they also provide lesson plan ideas.
