I've recently been hired at a local middle school, teaching English. I used to teach high school English, mostly because I loved the age group, but also because I am passionate about the written and spoken word. Middle school is going to be an adventure! My favorite part of what I do is that I get to watch as my students are brought to new places in their lives by being in my classroom. Now that I have a job, I still love the kids, but my passion comes and goes, depending on how willing they are to not put sticky notes in my hair. HI-larious, right? Not so much...
Obviously I am a nerd, and proud of it! I am one of the nicest people you will ever meet, and one of the most sarcastic, so you never know which version of myself you will get. I've been known to be quite a firecracker : )
I also like playing sports, especially tennis and basketball.
I need to laugh, or else I will self-combust, so if you have a good sense of humor, that's a major plus. Actually, even if you have a crappy sense of humor it might be ok, assuming of course that you try to make me laugh. I don't really care if I'm laughing at you, or with you, so long as I'm laughing : )
