Hey!! My name is Ashley Marlowe. I have lived in North Carolina for all of my life. Before I moved to Charlotte to go to UNCC I lived in a small rural town that has about four stop lights. The move to Charlotte was a big shock but I am loving the city life now. I am currently a junior at UNCC and cannot believe how fast time has flown in college. I have always wanted to be an elementary school teacher. I think I decided this when I was in Kindergarten. To be so close to finally graduating is so crazy to me,but very exciting.
Besides being an Elementary School teacher, I have always dreamed of traveling the world. I think seeing all the beautiful places and scenes would be absolutely amazing. The places I most want to visit are Europe, Australia and the small beautiful towns there.

Goals - individual growth, critical thinking, self-reliance, co- operation, commitment to lifelong learning. Most important person - student not teacher. Not curriculum bound Not age/grade locked. Student-centred - intensive, but relaxed teacher/pupil contact. Needs low teacher/pupil ratio. de-emphasises schedules. Almost no control or competition Difficult to draw the line between chaos and order, rebelliousness and expression of rights. Productive and unproductive time. Students tend to have better self-concepts and are more creative and co- operative, but academic achievements are lacking http://www.garysturt.free-online.co.uk/human.htm
