My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am an elementary school teacher/tutor, looking for new friends, and eventually, a long term relationship. I don't know what exactly who I'm looking for, or when/how it will all happen, but I am open to what God has in store for me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently waiting for the opportunity to have a classroom of my own. In the meantime, I am a substitute teacher, tutor in the evenings and weekends, and teach Sunday school almost every week. I also enjoy helping out with audio-visual and sometimes help fix a neighbor's computer problem or two.

In my free time, I enjoy riding my bike and running. I also love to sing, and sometimes just stay in and sing around the house. :)

As you would expect, I am also currently looking for someone on this site with which I can spend my time. I would like not only to enjoy the benefits of a close relationship I may find (hopefully spending time with someone biking, working together, being eccentric and goofy) but also contribute to the success of such a relationship.

I would like to be the good listener when you need someone to just listen. I would like to be the incurable optimist and positive motivator for you. These are my favorite moods. :)

I would like to work through conflict when it occurs, and to apologize when appropriate. I would like to go on crazy adventures and be open-minded to your ideas. In the same way, I hope you would be open-minded to some of my eccentricity as well.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am somewhat proficient at a variety of things, including teaching, singing, organization, and technology.

I also really enjoy piano, but am not as proficient at reading music. Still I have a couple of really amazing songs I can play, if you happen to know Christian music.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Most people notice how enthusiastic and cheerful I am, and often comment on it. I work pretty hard to tone it down actually so I don't look so ridiculous. I admit it, I love life and my circumstances, and I don't wish to change that positive attitude toward life.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

"It's Not All Flowers and Sausages: My Adventures in Second Grade" by Mrs. Mimi

This is a hilarious book about the experiences of a 2nd Grade teacher in a Harlem (NYC) Public School. From not having a supply of pencils to having unusual field trips to a 'farm' in New York City, this book packs the laughs on every page! It makes me realize how good I have it in the typical elementary school of suburbia.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- A personal relationship with the Lord
- A willingness to serve
- I don't think there are four more necessary things. I might think of one or two more later.

I'm updating this after having these up for awhile, and I still haven't thought of any more things to add. I think there's a really good reason for that. Maybe you can guess why. :)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I love teaching. It feels invigorating when my students and I are completely engaged in a lesson, using manipulatives, and they are asking and answering questions with each other, exploring a topic deeply as a group. I enjoy discussing teaching ideas with other teachers in order to consider new ideas and improve my abilities.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I work on Friday nights at my tutoring center. On Fridays, I teach Algebra, Pre Algebra, and fifth grade reading.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
While I know quite a bit about technology, I have very limited knowledge on any of the following:

- Video games: I think I played a video game once when I was babysitting as a teen, and I couldn't get my character to do more than jump before the boy knocked me off the top of a building. I must admit, I was a bit frustrated after that.

- Secular media: What's that new movie out lately? Is it worth paying $6? Yeah, I didn't think so.

- Texting: All text messages I've ever sent have ended with, "WHERE'S THE LOWERCASE BUTTON?"

Yes, I'll admit, I don't have much of an online presence. I prefer to spend time with people in person, and generally do.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you're still reading. :)

Actually, if you read past the texting piece, I'm quite amazed at your open-mindedness, and would really like you to contact me.

However, if you were looking for a more well thought out answer to this one:

You should message me if you are an open-minded Christian who can enjoy being lifelong friends with a grown up goofball who is perfectly capable of being mature, but most of the time would rather just spend free time living into Matthew 18:3. :)

Well, okay. Maybe that's taking that verse a bit out of context. Please use the in-context version.
