Nice to meet you all! blog post #1
My name is Kelly Evans. I was born here, but moved to Gulfport, Mississippi when I was 12 years old. In 1995 I moved back to Mobile and got a job at Providence Hospital where I was a Surgery Tech. and helped to deliver babies for a living. I met my husband shortly after moving here. We have been married for 14+ years. My husband and I have 7 children (No, that is not a typo). In addition to raising our children, my husband and I also own our own plumbing and drain business where I work part time as an office manager.
I can remember as a young child teaching to my stuffed animals and although they were great students, my dream was to one day have my very own classroom of real students. Life put those dreams on hold as I had my first child at the age of 16. In the fall of 2007 I decided it was now or never. So I embarked on the journey towards fulfilling my dream of graduating college with a degree in Elementary Education. I started out at Bishop State Community College and transferred here this past summer. This is my third semester here at The University of South Alabama and I have enjoyed every minute of it.
I love to scrapbook pictures! It is my passion. I go on two trips annually to get away with my girlfriends where we scrapbook the weekend away.
I want to enter the Education field to make a difference in the lives of children. I want to have a positive influence on them and show them compassion and understanding through my actions and words. I want them to know; that no matter what circumstances may arise, they can do and be anything they want in life.
