Introduction to the class

  1. 1. Introduction to the Class<br />
  2. 2. Alyssa<br />I grew up in a small town in North Dakota and wouldn’t have it any other way. <br />There is something special about being able to run up and down the sidewalks knowing all the people you pass.<br />I am 21 years old and engaged to be married next year.<br />My favorite color is green.<br />I have 2 older brothers – 1 niece and 2 nephews that mean the world to me. <br />
  3. 3. Alyssa continued….<br />I am majoring in Speech Pathology with hopes of graduating in the Spring of 2011 and moving on to get my Master’s Degree at MSUM.(hopefully!!) I want nothing more than to work with kids, they are happy with the little things in life and I think that’s something very important to remember. <br />
  4. 4. Fun Facts <br />I am 13 and 15 years younger than my brothers- and yes I was planned! <br />I spent the summer after my freshman year as a nanny on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. <br />I love to read and spend time with family and friends. <br />The Yankees are my favorite team to watch on TV. <br />
  5. 5. Favorites<br />Children<br />Books<br />Weather<br />Fiancé<br />Pictures<br />Shoes<br />Target<br />Baths<br />Tanning<br />Salt<br />Facebook<br />Family<br />Quotes<br />Carmex<br />
  6. 6. My Hall of Famer: <br />Gloria Yerkovich<br />Founded a system for abducted children. <br />This is very important to me because I don’t think any parent should every have to go through the pain of missing a child and now there is a faster way to get everyone’s attention about a missing child. What a fascinating woman!<br />
  7. 7. Gloria Yerkovich<br />She went through the horror of having a child abducted in 1974—by her natural father none the less! <br />Gloria wasn’t reunited with her daughter until 1984.<br />She started “CHILD FIND” in 1981, since more than 150,000 children are abducted every year a national registry of missing children was created. It consists of a picture and description of the child as last seen in hopes of reuniting them with their parents. <br />
  8. 8. Gloria Yerkovich continued…<br />She signed the “Missing Children Act” in front of the President of the United States as awareness grew.<br />Talk about an achievement! <br />She was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1993.<br />Gloria is still alive to this day and has seen the success of her thoughtful thinking.<br />
