I am majoring in Psychology/Elementary Education. I will be graduating in Fall 2010. My plans are to teach Kindergarten and get my Master's to become a Reading Specialist. I love working with young children and I believe it is so important to give them a strong foundation to build the rest of their lives upon. I want to be apart of the movement to give children "smart beginnings so they will become avid readers and lifelong learners."\\ I love the outdoors, nature, walking, kayaking, and scrapbooking. This summer I went tubing for the 1st time and it was so much fun! I also took my 1st dance class - Chicago style steppin. I am learning to be more adventurous because there is so much to experience. I believe "Each day is a new canvas to paint on." So let's get painting!!!
