Born and raised outside Chicago. Pretty typical suburban upbringing. Spent seven years in Champaign, GO ILLINI!!! and then moved back after college (kind of a Van Wilder plan)
My degree is in Sociology but apparently it does not open a ton of doors. I am glad it is my degree field though, it has made me able to understand where people come from and not judge so easily. I also started my masters in elem ed but had to stop to pay bills. I worked with 1st through 4th graders for three years when I was younger and really enjoyed that age group. Being a big kid must help me relate to them.
I am a fountain of random knowledge, I always seem to have an answer for a random question.
