Blog Post Assignment #1

Hello my name is Jennifer Smith and I am a 27 years old. I am from Mobile, Al and I have lived here for most of my life. I have also lived in Montgomery, Alabama where I attended Auburn University Montgomery. I come from a very large family that is mainly in Mobile. The fact that my family is so family oriented and close knit encouraged my move back to Mobile in which to be closer to my family. Family is such a big part of my life. Upon moving back to Mobile at the beginning of 2010 I decided to attend University of South Alabama. It was a good decision I have had nothing but good experiences at The University of South Alabama. My extended family as well as my immediate family are extremely close. I have a younger sister and an older brother, which makes me the middle child. I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, reading and of course shopping.
Right now I am currently playing many roles in my life. I am a student, a leasing consultant and last but not least a new mommy. I love staying busy because it helps me focus. I am one of those kinds of people who actually work better under pressure. I love being a mommy. My daughter just turned two months old and she quickly became the best blessing I have ever received in my life.
My major is elementary education. I chose this major because I love children and I believe in the education of children.I especially believe in the literacy of children as well as all people. I think that illiteracy is a major issue in the world as well as the education world. I want to be a teacher to serve as  a role model for children and to pass on the gift of knowledge to children. I believe that children are so impressionable and I want to be the person who provides a long lasting impression for them. I hope to one day open a pre-school academy for children specializing in the early education of children.
