Hello, my name is Jenna Baxter and I am 22 years old. I was born and raised right here in Mobile, Alabama. I have a four year old son named Hunter and I am happily married to my husband Heath. I consider my family the most important people in my life and that is why I decided to go to college. I want to be able to provide my son with every opportunity I can, and I believe advancing my education is the way to do that. Elementary Education was not my first major of choice. I started out majoring in Nursing. After pretty much wasting my first three years of college (several of my classes would not transfer over), I realized nursing was not for me. Education has always been my back-up plan and I am very excited about this journey to teaching. I have always felt closer to children than people my own age, and I believe this will be a great opportunity to make an impact in someone's life.
Some other interests that I have include softball, bowling, spending time with family and friends,and listening to music. I played softball at a local park for six or seven years before I had my son. I love this sport because it keeps me so active and look forward to playing again when my schedule permits. I have recently renewed my interests in bowling, as we have been taking my son to play, and hope on joining a league during the summer. Being able to spend time with my family and friends is also very important to me. Whether it is just sitting at the house together or planning a trip somewhere, as long as I am with people I love it does not matter what we do. Something else you may want to know about my life is that I consider myself a hard worker. I have been working at the same job for almost 6 years, as well as going to school and raising my son. It is very important that I work to help my husband in providing for our family. This is just a small snapshot of my life and feel free to comment or ask any questions you may want to know more about.
