Hi! My name is Vanessa Hipkins. I am in my final semester of my fourth year of Education here at the University of Regina (Yay!). In April (2011), I will graduate with a Bachelor of Education (Elementary) – the start to my teaching career! I have lived in Regina for the past four years now while attending university, but originally I am from the small (small, small…) town of Porcupine Plain Saskatchewan (about three hours North East of Regina). I am part of a very close, loving, and growing family of eight – dad, mom, two (older) brothers, sister-in-law, niece, and nephew. I enjoy taking part in a wide variety of hobbies and activities – playing, watching, and coaching sports, cooking and baking, painting landscape pictures, and traveling around the world to name a few.
This is my first [and hopefully not last] attempt at “blogging” so bear with me as I learn and try new things, AND please feel free to offer any comments, advice and/or suggestions that I can use to help me on my “blogging adventure!” Thanks!
