My self-summary
My name is Bryce and I am a Special Education Teacher. I spend most of my time reading graduate material or teaching little kids.

2015 Europe Trip: Greece, Hungary, Romania, Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, Ireland.
2014 Europe Trip: Croatia, Switzerland, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, England, Scotland, Ireland.

Recently moved from California (about three years now). In California I taught at a socioeconomically disadvantaged high school.
Knowing my work was ending there I received a call from a former college friend with a job offer in Colorado. I subsequently
left work there, flew out to Colorado, and worked for OFA during the presidential election season.
I continue to work in the educational field, currently working with autistic children at a K-8 school, tutoring, and attending to the needs of ELL students.

I believe in the ideas of Bushido, particularly zen and rectitude (if you don't know what they are, look it up), and stay up contemplating passages from the Art of War. I think a lot of it applies to daily life.
What I’m doing with my life
Listening to Vanilla Ice, dancing at 90s night, working with autistic children, and starting graduate school (Masters in Education) program at the University of Washington.

Fighting for social justice, in whatever capacity that entails.

I am also busy exploring Seattle. My favorite places so far are Discovery Park, Golden Gardens, Olympic National Forest and Alki, and whale watching by the San Juan Islands. Humpback whales are amazing!

Currently collecting a bunch of vinyl. I have Nirvana (Bleach, Nevermind, In Utero), Modest Mouse (The Moon and Antarctica), Neutral Milk Hotel (Aeroplane over the Sea), Smashing Pumpkins (Siamese Dream), Rolling Stones (Let It Bleed), Joy Division (Unknown Pleasures), Shins (Oh Inverted World, Chutes Too Narrow, Port of Morrow), Arcade Fire (Funeral), Black Keys (El Camino) and The Clash (London Calling).
I’m really good at
Philosophical conversations, ethical choices, and board games.
The first things people usually notice about me
How outgoing and straightforward I am. I'm an extrovert.

I'm not a Seahawks fan (sorry people).
