Blossoming into Education

My name is Whitney Surrency and  I am 21 years old. I have lived in Nashville, Georgia my entire life. I am currently a junior at Valdosta State University, and I  am studying in the Early Childhood and Special Education Department. I hope to graduate from VSU with  a Bachelor of Science degree in Education by  December 2010. I hope to be teaching a classroom full of eager 1st graders in or near my hometown by the following fall. Within the next 5 or 6 years, I hope to be married, and eventually have a family of my own!

I have one sister, named Christy. For the most part, she and I get along pretty well. I am a member of  Nashville First Baptist Church. I am a very happy and patient person. I can get along with anyone, and I try to find the very best in everyone! I try to do my  best at anything I do. I believe everything happens for a reason, and you have to make yourself happy in life! I am a procrastinator. I work best under pressure! I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, and my boyfriend. I have a Yorkshire Terrier named Abby. I enjoy reading and I love to paint, even though I am not very good at it. I also LOVE to shop! I do a lot of shopping for books for my future classroom online at Amazon. I have always wanted to be a teacher, children are a blessing from God, and I truly feel like this is my calling in life.

The following websites have been very helpful for me, and I believe many teachers could benefit from them. is the website that has all of the Standards for the state of Georgia.

Bright from the Start has also been very helpful with PreK lessons. I have linked both of these websites, which I hope will be convenient.
