Summer Yeary About Me

I grew up in a small town called West Point, VA. I am an Army brat, so I was born in Fort Polk, Louisiana. I've also lived in Hawaii for a short period of time before moving to Virginia. I have been in Virginia for the past 17 years.
I have an awesome family. My mother and father have been together since they were teenagers, and they are still happily married. My sister and brother-in-law have been together for four years and have had two amazing boys, Carter and Isaac. My sister recently found out she is pregnant with a third child! This is a picture taken on Christmas Eve of my family.
I went to West Point Elementary, Middle and High School. At West Point High, I earned a advanced high school diploma. I have taken a few college classes at Tappahanock Community College, as well as New River Community College. I am currently earning a degree at Radford University.
I am pursuing a master's degree in Early Childhood and Early Childhood Special Education. Teaching is my calling. Ever since I was a little girl, I have wanted to teach. It wasn't until I came to Radford University and actually worked with children, did I know that I was made to do this. Teaching children is lighting a fire in their minds, so that they can build a foundation for themselves.
In five to ten years, I want to either be a early interventionist or a first grade teacher. Last semester I got the experience to co-teach in a first grade classroom and I absolutely fell in love. This semester, I am working with an early interventionist doing home visits. I am slowly starting to fall in love with this career too. It will be a hard decision, but when the time comes I know I will make the right choice.
Dirty bathrooms bug me. Whether it be a public or private, I can't stand a dirty bathroom. Do you need any further explanation?
I hate a full sink of dishes. My dishwasher has never worked, and nobody truly likes to do dishes.
I have a lot of love for my Army family. I have been serving for four and half years now, and have met plenty of people. These people I consider family; many of them have seen me grow and become a better person. Some bonds can't be broken.
This photo shows some of the most important people in my life. My sister has been through thick and thin with me. We are lucky to have each other as a support system and as a friend. She brought two beautiful boys into this world, my nephews, and I would do anything for them.
Here is only a few of many pictures of important people in my life. Some call them crazy, I call them friends. They mean the world to me.
