A bit About Me

Hello, my name is Keilan Yancey, and I am a student at the University of South Alabama majoring in Secondary Biology. I am currently a sophomore, and plan on having another great semester of college. I am the second oldest out of four kids; I have an older brother and two younger sisters. I live with both of my parents, and they have been married for 20 years and counting. I was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, but I have lived most of my life in Mobile, Alabama. My mom graduated from the University of South Alabama so I am continuing the tradition.

The reason I choose the field of education is because education plays a key role in life, especially in today's society. I like helping people learn and better understand things, I get a great feeling inside when I know I have helped someone achieve something. Giving to me is more important than receiving; I like the similes it brings to people faces.

I have been a huge football fan my whole life, especially SEC football. I have hopes of becoming a football coach one day, and going down into the coaches' hall of fame. Above all else I love my family; I do not know what I will do without them. I plan on making them proud by graduating from college, and having a successful career.

Time Management

This is my first time ever hearing something on or about Dr. Randy Pausch.
Dr. Pausch made some great points about time management and procrastination in his video Time Management. Dr. Pausch talks about how we procrastinate, and if we were to get over procrastination we would do better with our time management skills. I liked his frog example about if you have to eat three frogs do not eat the little one first. What Dr. Pausch is saying is if you have things to do get the hard or tough things done first, then do the less difficult things.

  1. Biology and football. An interesting combination!

    You will watch Dr. Pausch's Last lecture later in the course.

  2. Keilan, You were born in Hawaii? Wow, not many people can say that. I am planning to go there very soon. I had the same thought as Dr. Strange when I read that you were majoring in Biology and had hopes of becoming a coach,very interesting!
    This was also my first time ever watching anything on Dr. Pausch. He gave great advice that I plan to use!
