Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've been living in Denver for 9 years now, but I originally grew
up in Michigan and went to college at the University of
Wisconsin-Madison. All of these things I'm very proud of.
I'm a middle school Language Arts teacher in Aurora, and I love
I stay active, but I'm more down for the adventurous stuff-
horseback riding, hiking, climbing, boating, etc. I do not,
however, ski or snowboard. Yes, I've tried it, no I do not like
I do love to travel and am always down for an adventure. I decided
to treat myself for the big 3-0. My friend and I road tripped to
the Grand Canyon for a week for my actual birthday and then I went
to Spain for two weeks in July. This summer, I travelled to
Colombia (yes, it's spelled with an o, not a u) for two weeks with
a short stop in Panama City.
I can also be very mellow. I like to read, write, watch movies, and
enjoy the little things in life (especially the outdoors).
Oh and I won't answer any messages that indicate that you haven't
at least perused my profile. This isn't a bar- I'm not trying to
get hit on just for my pics.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've been teaching for 8 years, and I just finished my Master's at
UCD. I bought a house three years ago and have been enjoying the
little home improvement projects. I have also just started getting
back into horse showing. :)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
teaching, writing, reading, horseback riding, rock climbing,
cooking (when I'm motivated)...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably that I'm small, but I carry myself like I'm tall. I'm
generally quiet, especially at first, but I speak my mind. I'm also
pretty sarcastic. I guess some don't expect/like that.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Teaching. Also about the future, things to do, and how this could
be a better world. And of course about the next adventure-
traveling or otherwise.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Generally I'm a night person, but at the end of a long work week,
Fridays I typically go out for happy hour for a few hours after
work then hang out with a movie or something chill for the
remainder of the evening. I guess I'm getting old.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Um.... my clothes are organized by color (in rainbow order of
course) in my closet.
