Blog Assignment 1

I was born and raised in Mobile, AL. I graduated from Murphy High School in 2008. From Murphy, I went to Jacksonville State University for two years. I really enjoyed my time there in Jacksonville, but I really missed my friends and family in Mobile. I decided to move back home in the summer of 2010 and applied and got accepted to USA. I chose Elementary Education as my major. I chose this major because I have always loved children and I have always loved teaching them. My first grade teacher had a huge impact on my wanting to be a first grade teacher as well.
I come from a huge family. There are six kids in my family. Five of the six kids are girls and only one is a  boy and he is the youngest. I loved growing up in a huge family and that probably has something to do with my love for kids. I currently am working two jobs. The first job I work is during the week and it is as a nanny to two of the most precious children you will ever meet: Hannah and Hampton. Hannah is five years old and Hampton is three years old. The second job I work is usually on the weekends only. It is at Cold Snap Frozen Yogurt. It is a laid back, enjoyable job that helps pay the bills.
I have many interests in life. One of them being almost anything that has to do with the outdoors. I love running, hiking, biking, kayaking, etc. the list goes on. Anything challenging that is outdoors is something that I tend to love. This pretty much sums me up!


  1. This sounds like me! I am a nanny for two kids during the week too, and I have another job during the weekends! You work at Cold Snap? I love that place! I was just there yesterday. Great Post!

  2. Hey Sarah,

    Great first post! It really hope you enjoy this class and we hope you will learn a lot! I think that we need people like your first grade teacher to inspire us to do something that will help others! It is amazing to think that at such a young age, you were impacted and it has influenced you even today.

    Good luck this semester, and don't forget that you must have picture for all of your blog posts.
