Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a cautious DORK of a man that is proud to be a tad different
from time to time. I have a few tattoos and would like some more. I
don't care for crouds and enjoy learning about all kinds of people.
I run and ride my bicycle for an escape from reality. I find it
easy to turn my brain off or contimplate any issue as I run or
I have built 2 motorcycles and rebuilt a 71 Nova. i love to build
remote control airplanes but don't make time or enjoy flying the
planes or riding the motorcycles To me it is much more fun to build
then it is to ride the bike or fly the planes. It is the problem
solving, creating and artistry that i crave in those activities. i
love to take things apart and rebuild as they were or convert them
into a new creation.
I love to play anything with my sons. I miss being with them
everyday but am working very hard at making the most of the shared
custody that I have of them. Although it is not the reason i became
a teacher. It is one of the best things about being a teacher is
summer time off. I am able to spend all day, every day with my 2
boys. They like to swim and play at any park. Last summer we made a
pact to visit as many new parks in the area as we could and to go
to as many park district water parks we could drive to.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Teaching science to deaf and hard of hearing middle schoolers.
Challenging job at times. I enjoy the challenge of finding a way to
present the information in a fun visual way that intrests the
I am also trying to return back to a "normal" life. I was in a
motorcycle accident where I was in the hospital for a month and
then in their trauma rehabilitation program for another 2 months to
prove that i was healed and ready to go back to work. Honestly
being a student in a program and not teacher is a cruel, nasty
trick that life played on me and I am glad to have had the table
turned on me to help me remember what my students may often feel
like. I am very fortunate and have no lasting affects of the
accident. All wounds are heald and scars are not noticable at all.
I thank my "stars" every day.
I am also considering running in my first marathon next year. I ran
in Chicago's rock n roll half marathon just before my accident and
had the time of my life running with a huge crowd of people and
listening to live bands as we ran by. As of July 13th, I have run 3
half marathons this year. I just had time and was beyond bored so I
went out for a long run then a few weeks later another one and then
today one more. I love to run everyday but the thought of going 26
miles just seems a tad to long for me. I think I would become bored
and trip or fall asleep in the middle of the marathon. I have made
some nice friends who enjoy running and I think as a grop, a full
marathon should be a great time.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Having a unique sence of humor to keep people on their toes.
Running, bike riding, using my hands. Apparently I amy also good at
healing my body after coming off a motorcycle at 50 mph. The police
raport stated 90mph but I don't think so. Lastly I am also really
good and convincing people that I am an alien from another planet
called Tralfamadore. bonus to anyone that can tell me about my home
The first things people usually notice about me

My sense of humor as they wonder what planet I may possibly be from

i possibly be.

My 2 sons
Building and creating so i keep my imagination active

Playing. To keep in touch with my inner child (hahaha)
my tattoos and the desire for getting more ink to tell the stories
of my life.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
why things are the way they are and how they got to be that way.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
running or tryinig to build or create anything to use my
imagination (sitting at home because I am who I am)
