Sweet, spunky red-head looking for adventure and perhaps "Mar Nachon." Artistic, articulate and sarcastic. A middle school English teacher who absolutely ADORES her students and her work. Loves to pun, abhors cliche. Occassional dancer, frequent poet, constant artist. Passionate about language, logic, art, green olives, her students and the correct use of the words "who" and "whom." Indifferent about pina coladas, but definitely a fan of getting caught in the rain, and always up for long walks on the beach. Wants to change the world, one mind at a time.
Looking for someone witty, quirky and artistic who is not threatened by a woman with opinions.
What I’m doing with my life
I make kids see beauty in the mundane and I get them jumping out of
their seats to refute an argument that I've written on the board. I
turn children into adults and I make them think and make them like
it. I open minds and I rouse rabbles. I build tomorrows out of
todays and yesterdays. I instigate revolution.
I teach the art of communication to fascinating people.
I’m really good at
rocking boats, stirring up trouble, changing lead into gold and
firing shots heard 'round the world. And mixing metaphors.
The first things people usually notice about me
The long colorful skirt I'm usually wearing, the henna on my hand,
or the enormous stack of papers I'm trying to grade.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Nobody actually reads this section anyway.
I defy traditional categories, so I will create my own:
Favorite Items to Paint (not as subjects, but rather as surfaces on which I enjoy applying paint):
Favorite Words, and Their Definitions:
Pleonasm- the unnecessary use of more words than are needed to express a thought
Prestidigitation- a slight of hand or magic trick
Hippopotamonstrasesquipideliaphobia- the fear of very long words
Welcome to Night Vale
Wait Wait, Don't Tell Me
Ask Me Another
Favorite Languages I Would Learn if I Had Time:
All of them
Favorite Sentence I've Ever Written on a Grammar Worksheet:
I'm sorry, Ma'am, but we cannot replace you're elephant that you bought from are store, your not supposed to feed an elephant helium, so its you're own fault that it has floated away.
(If you can't catch 6 errors in that sentence, we might not get along too well.)
The six things I could never do without
1. My extremely colorful classroom full of extremely colorful students
1a. Brightly-colored grading pens
2. Green olives and brownie batter
3. A good beach
4. Thunderstorms and sunshine
6. My independence
I spend a lot of time thinking about
words. I'm one of Nature's grammarians and I think long sentences are sexy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Painting or otherwise making something, or possibly grading papers.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is something I will tell you if we ever meet in person and have
chemistry. Actually, I'd prefer that we have geography; I was never
very good at chemistry. I'm allergic to math.
You should message me if
your profile contains no cliches (i.e. 'living life to the
fullest,' or 'I like to have fun and hang out,') and you are in the
habit of (correctly) using the word "hence" in everyday
conversations. "Thence" is a plus. ;)
