Hi! My name is Victoria Hudson but I go by Tori. I'm from Spanish Fort, Alabama and I'm majoring in elementary education. I went to the University of Alabama my freshman and sophomore year but I transferred back home for my junior year because I missed being home and close to the water. I love Tuscaloosa but I would rather visit there than live there! My family has a beach house on Dauphin Island and we go there as often as we can to relax, paddle board, and mostly to fish. 
I was not always in the field of education. While I was at UA, I was going on a route to pursue a career in physical therapy but I was not %100 sure that was what I wanted to do. Once I transferred home, I had an opportunity to work at the YMCA for summer camp working with kids. After my first week, I was very sure I wanted to continue working with kids and that is when I talked to an advisor and was certain that is what I wanted to do. In the 21st century, I believe an educator's work entails overall to teach children information they need to grow and better themselves for the future.

My favorite thing to do is to be on the water or on the boat. I love to fish and participate in water sports or kayaking etc. I'm pretty awful at wake boarding though and would love to get better at it!
