I'm a native Californian and have spent most of my life in the northern part of the state. I am so excited to be back in the Bay Area after residing in Humboldt County, where I was for a total of nine years: 2000-2007 and 2011-2013. I was teaching in Los Angeles and the Bay Area for two years each, during my time away from Humboldt. I love being a teacher! I'm a bit quirky and silly but that goes over pretty well with my students.
I enjoy learning other people's perspectives. I'd rather sit and listen to others' ideas than spew off my own. Don't get me wrong. I can go on and on about certain things: Special Education, electronic music, cars, linguistics/grammar and other topics, too. It's always refreshing to hear some new idea, or twist on an old one, and letting it swirl around in my mind to see how it sits with what's already there.
I appreciate aesthetics: buildings, art, fashion, cars, and the like. I can often feel these items' contributions to the world better than I could describe them. I prefer bold colors and shapes. My favorite artist is Wassily Kandinsky. My favorite car is a Porsche 911 Turbo, not that I could ever afford one on a teacher's salary.
Other favorites: dancing, shopping, dining, driving.
I am stylish, determined, and cheerful.
