Queer femme. I tend to use sass a lot. I'm direct, compassionate, caring, confident, smart, friendly, and independent. I'm carefree, but extremely passionate about certain things like my job. Sometimes I'm a little goofy. Sometimes I wear glasses, sometimes I don't. I'm kind of a girly girl and am rather feminine in appearance, but I also love things like camping and hiking.
I speak Sesotho (apparently not a language recognized by okcupid). I learned the language while living and teaching in Lesotho, a small country in Southern Africa.
I have a weakness for intelligent women who are kind of tomboyish.
What I’m doing with my life
I recently rediscovered my athletic side, I lift and I play roller derby, I also walk a lot.
I work as a special education teacher in Brooklyn at a school for kids with autism. I teach tiny humans all about technology, currently we are coding and building robots. They make me laugh on a regular basis and I absolutely love what I do.

I don't really watch much TV, but I enjoy anything with a strong female lead. I like Transparent.

Family, friends, camera, music, roller skates and going for long
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I'd like my next photo project to be.
What it means to be a radical educator. How race and gender play

The intersection of femininity and queer.

Something low key, usually recovering from a long week.

You are kind, compassionate, know who you are and you're more tomboyish than girly girl. You have a sense of humor.
