I'm 32 and a teacher...I possess all of the qualities an amazing
teacher should (and I'll be honest, a lot more). I am shy and
outgoing at the same time, which is an interesting mix. I am funny
and love to laugh. I am a great all around girl that people tend to
want to be around. I value things in people like honesty,
integrity, loyalty, and passion.
What I’m doing with my life
I am really passionate and driven in my career, and at this point I
pour a lot of who I am into it. I am taking classes to finish up my
masters and then moving on to get my doctorate.
I’m really good at
building and maintaining relationships...using three dots to
separate my thoughts...cooking and baking...gardening (weird
eh?)...finding the good in others...not so good at writing little
blurbs about myself.
The first things people usually notice about me
I usually laughing or smiling, I tend to be sarcastic, and despite
any type of weather I am wearing flip flops.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This is my favorite question yet!
I read a lot, both for pleasure and for work so the list is long
and distinguished (know the movie that came from?). I love the
Harry Potter books (and I won't blame that one being a teacher),
Nineteen Minutes, Tuesdays with Morrie, The Book Whisperer, and
Change of Heart.
My favorite movies are a toss up between 80's flicks and Chick
Flicks...Sixteen Candles, The Goonies, P.S. I love you, Goodfellas
(didn't see that one coming, I'm sure). Really I love almost
I watch Top Chef, One Tree Hill, American Pickers, SVU, any of the
trashy tv on Bravo.
I like music I can sing (badly) to. I honestly listen to a little
bit of everything so there's not one genre that I can nail
I am a total Italian girl (red sauce not white) but enjoy trying
The six things I could never do without
I don't know that I have 'great' things that I couldn't do
without...some might be a tad shallow (forgive that, I'm actually a

-My phone...I really do have to have a way to get in contact with
-A mani/pedi weekly. It is the most relaxing moment of my week...I
am that girl that always has her nails done.
-My career...I love being a teacher and really it drives who I

have it at this point.
-Ipod...It is my one constant thing that no matter where I am, it
makes it feel like home....it's constantly playing, even in my
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to be a better teacher (as cheesy as that sounds). I spend a
lot of time thinking about friends and family...I am a really
thoughtful person adn I try my hardest to make those in my life
feel special and do nice things for them.
On a typical Friday night I am
usually at a happy hour/dinner with work friends.....at a Blues
game...hanging out at home making dinner...really there is no
typical Friday night.
You should message me if
you can look past my need to use the three dots instead of making
complete sentences. Also, if you're fun, can hold your own in
