Blog Assignment 1

Hey! My name's Christie Odom and this is my fourth year attending USA. I went to high school at MGM, and as soon as I graduated in 2007 I started classes at South. In addition to school, I have a part time job at a daycare. I have been there for almost 4 years now and I LOVE it! The children at my job are actually the reason I decided to major in Elementary Education. My kids most definitely have my heart! I realized that there was nothing that I would rather do than be a teacher (and a continual learner). Knowledge is one of the most important things that can be passed on to children. I would love to be able to help educate them as they grow and hopefully be able to teach in an exciting, yet memorable way.

I have lived here in Mobile my whole life. I have a very big, close knit family. Between birthday parties, softball tournaments and football games, I never have a dull moment. When I'm not at school or work, I like to spend my time outside. I would much rather be outdoors than to be stuck inside behind a TV. I love shopping, like most girls, but if you don't find me shopping you will probably find me fishing or playing sports (even though I am not too good). I'm a big animal lover;I love my dog Molly, and I think I'm addicted to Redbull. Other than that, I think I'm just a typical girl trying to make the most out of the life that has been given to me!
