My name is Kelly Fanning and I’m a student at the University of Mary Washington. I plan on majoring in psychology and doing the elementary education program. I am very passionate about education and making the world a better place, and I believe the two go hand in hand. I also love to be outdoors and travel. I hike whenever possible and have a goal to experience all the best nature America has to offer through one day visiting every National Park in the county.  I’ve made a lot of strides towards achieving that goal, but still have a long way to go. Other things I like to do in my free time are watch shows like Parks and Rec and The Office, and read whatever I can. Through this website, I will be sharing some of my thoughts about education through blog posts and will be displaying coursework completed in my classes throughout my academic years. Hope you enjoy!
