A bit about me
My name is Jamie Cunningham. I am 25 years old and happily married. I have been married for 3 years to Brian Cunningham. I have two beautiful children that mean the world to me. My son Bryce is three and my daughter Brooke is 1. I honestly don't plan on having any more children because my two are a hand full. After giving birth to my first it was so hard for me to leave. I got attached and decided to become a stay at home mom. I loved being home with my babies and I taught them so much. I taught my son his colors, alphabets, shapes, and numbers. Education is important to me and I want my children to excel in all they do. Although I was educating them I felt they needed to be around other kids, and I needed to get back into school to finish my education. So, January 2012 I decided it was time to make a change and enrolled at the University of South Alabama.

I am currently a Junior at South and I am majoring in Elementary Education. I graduated from Bishop State Community College in 2008 with an Associates degree in General Education. If I stick to my plan I will graduated from South in May of 2015. It seems like a long time, but I am sure it will be over before I know it. After I graduate from South I hope I am able to find a job in a local school or daycare. I loved teaching my children various things so I know I will love teaching others and receiving a paycheck will be considered a bonus.

Time Management

While watching the you tube video by Randy Pausch on time management I was thinking that it was possibly a waste of my time.I noticed that the video was cut short and I am happy that it was.But thinking about the whole aspect of time management Randy Pausch did make some good points. He mentioned that in managing time it's a good idea to form a to do list. I write out a to do list daily to make sure that I don't forget anything. The second good point that I noticed was when he said that when you prepare your list make sure you do the "ugliest" thing first. I found this interesting because that is something so hard to do for me. I prefer to do the easier things first and the hardest last. Maybe I need to try this new way on managing my time.



  1. Maybe you will start to do the hardest things first. Try it and let us know how it works!

  2. Hey Jamie! Wow you certainly do have your hands full, but I bet it is so fun with children so close in age. I have a three year old daughter who I've stayed home with since birth as well. I love how you take time with your children and teach them everything. More parents need to be like you. Don't worry, 2015 will be here before you know it. Take one day at a time and always do your best. Do you have a certain grade you'd like to teach? I taught Kindergarten for 2 years and boy was that challenging, but fun too. I'm sure you will be a fabulous teacher and your students will love you no matter how old they are. Good luck in all you do.
