Vicki's Briar Patch

Hello!  My name is Vicki Jacobson.  I am a junior at Valdosta State University pursuing a degree in Early Childhood Education.  I plan to graduate in December 2005.  I earned my first degree in Agronomy at Oklahoma State University in May 1990.  Although I enjoyed the work I did as an Agronomist, I feel my true calling is to teach children.  I am excited about earning my second degree and can not wait to start my new career as a teacher.

  I am currently employed by the Tift County Public Schools as a parapro at G.O. Bailey Primary school.  I work in a Kindergarten classroom and love my job!!  Working with children is truly a rewarding experience and of course, there is never a dull moment.

I was born and raised in Alva, OK.  I have since lived in 6 other states; California, South Dakota, Illinois, Kentucky, North Carolina, and Georgia.  I now live in Tifton, Ga, with my husband, Brent and my two boys, Kyle and Connor.  Tifton is known as the Reading Capital of the World.  We have lived here for 2 years.

  My favorite thing to do is spend time with my family.  One thing we enjoy doing together is traveling and learning as much as we can about different states where we have lived. Our favorite place to go is Wild Adventures Theme Park in Valdosta, GA.  We also like to play games and watch movies.

  Kyle and Connor keep us busy with their many activities.  They are both active in Cub Scouts.  They play soccer and baseball too.  We are members of the First United Methodist Church in Tifton, where I teach a 4th grade Sunday school class.  We recently got our first pet, Snowflake, who is a bunny rabbit.  She is a wonderful addition to our family.
