My self-summary
I have a sparkling personality (Im told) and I'm looking for the same. I'm multifaceted and love TRAVEL, book clubs, dancing (swing, blues, two step), teaching, intriguing conversations, language, well crafted cocktails, and amazing food. I'm super social but intellectual too. I'm open minded but down to earth. I love sports (Skins, DC United, Red Sox, U of M) and working out - healthy living is fun. I am adventurous. I taught in Italy last fall, parasailed last summer and will try (almost anything) once. I teach English as a Second Language and just returned from two off the charts amazing weeks in Greece. I AM NOT looking for a hookup. I'm a loyal Democrat too. #hillary2016
What I’m doing with my life
I teach ESL. I just graduated with my Masters in Secondary Education (ESL) and I recently taught EFL in Florence Italy. I love other cultures and languages. This is a new career for me.
I’m really good at
using the English language, socializing, making connections, strategy games, traveling, poker, staying fit. I'm also crazy good at cuddling and being the little spoon. ;)
The first things people usually notice about me
smile and eyes
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
There are so many books I love including the Prague Winter (Madeline Albright), To Kill a Mockingbird (all time fave), Kite Runner, Life of Pi (GREAT movie too), Eat, Pray, Love (don't hate), anything by Lisa See, Three Cups of Tea, The Four Agreements, Room and many many more. I want to read more of the classics too - Twain, Tolstoy, Steinbeck, Dickens etc. I'm reading 10 % Happier. Right now I'm reading The End of Power as recommended by Mark Zuckerberg.

Music - Blues, soul, R & B, country, bluegrass etc. Love to dance blues, swing, country etc.

I'm broadening my horizons with food. I love seafood but am lucky to live in a place where the options are endless.
The six things I could never do without
toothbrush, popsicles (yes really), NPR, books, family, friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
education, my family, friends, my career, world events, relationships, TRAVEL
On a typical Friday night I am
having dinner with friends, going to a movie, or dancing. Occasionally I'm just relaxing at home with my cat and a good book.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I watched the Bachelor recently and enjoyed it.

You think smart is sexy and poor grammar drives you a little nutty.
