Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an urban educator -- I believe strongly in the importance of
educating all children with strong mathematical and analytical
I'm a Conservative Jew, although less observant than I used to be;
as a practical person, I've had to give up some of the daily
expectations in order to be effective in my professional and
I am quirky, flirtatious, and private. It's a weird mix, I know.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently, I'm teaching middle school math. Often, you will also
find me dancing; rarely you will find me dancing while teaching
It's not an impossibility, but it doesn't happen often.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
spending hours on the internet doing nothing, over-analyzing
situations, denegrating myself for not reading enough literature,
procrastination, and enjoying myself.
Oh, also at dating computer scientists. Apparently, there's this
thing where if I date 20 of them, I get a free coffee at Starbucks
or something because 90% of my last boyfriends have been CS majors.
I guess that means that I have an incredible tolerance for
listening to the ceaseless debate about anything technology. I have
minimal programming experience myself but I worked as a student
intern in IT for two and a half years.
The first things people usually notice about me

I don't know. If I knew what people usually noticed about me, I'd
know what to change and what works.

A) mystery/detective novels. Anything Malcolm Gladwell wrote. And I
read and re-read Harry Potter all the time. Sorry.
B) I don't know. My classic is Dirty Dancing.
C) Musicals and musical theater. I use the music from Les
Miserables to help me get through a rough day. When that doesn't
work, I try "Cartoon Heroes". Otherwise, my musical tastes are
varied. The major requirement is that it not have heavy base and a
tendency toward high pitch.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) iPad with Data Plan,
2) Books -- eBooks count on the iPad.
3) Social networking tools to keep in contact with friends and good
teachers from everywhere I've been in life.
4) An open space to dance
-- and injure myself.
6) My many families of choice.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I am going to accomplish all of the things that I think I can
accomplish in my life time and make an impact on others in real,
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Once, I was a zealot and spent my Fridays at the synagogue -- but I
don't like my local synagogues so much anymore. Currently, I dance
on Friday nights.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes I feel like the guys in Office Space, looking up money
laundering in the dictionary. All of my purity points on purity
tests come from my lack of drug use -- I could never engage in
illegal activities because I simply wouldn't know where to begin.
