Both of my parents have passed, much of my family is older. I am the youngest of my siblings. I have nephews and nieces who I am quite close to. My family is distributed unevenly through Virginia, New York and Maine, this makes my summer trip North a fun experience. Last year I put on a little over 4000 miles on a six week trip traveling a crossed the Northeast and New England.
I have come around to meet in the middle on many levels. I have been married, had longstanding relationships, had several houses, dogs, cats, fish, prairie dogs, snakes, rabbits, chickens, pygmy hedgehogs, and for a brief time a ferret. Salt, Freshwater, River tanks, Chesapeake bay tanks, and pond tanks have graced my home. Like they say in the movies, that was then and this is now.
The world has pointed my world towards teaching for decades. For the past eight years I have been teaching science in the public schools.
A teacher way back in high school did that for me, so I am doing that in her memory. I am not naive to think that I am the only adult in their life that makes a difference, just an adult that they see every day.
I am not nearly as boring in person as this profile seems to make me.
