Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a caring, well-read, active, thoughtful, confident woman. I
have a curious mind. I like to find out about people, places,
things, how the world works.
I have a strong sense of commitment to things I find important (the
environment, public education, health and well-being) but I don't
take myself too seriously. This allows me to have a good sense of
humor and to laugh at myself.
I have spent time self-reflecting and becoming someone who has
insight about who they are, how to get along with others, and has a
strong sense of values and what is important.
I try to minimize my impact on the environment in many ways, mostly
by owning a bike instead of a car and carefully consuming.
I like to exercise, but do a variety of things to keep from getting
bored. One of my favorite bike rides is 3 Bears or across the
Golden Gate Bridge to Tiburon. Taking care of myself is important,
emotionally, spiritually and physically.
I love what living in the Bay area has to offer. Such as; hikes in
Tilden Park; watching the sunset at Cesar Chaves park; seeing
Wicked for the 2nd time; taking my godkids to The BFG at Ashby
Stage; a little bit of bike weirdness and activism at Critical
Mass; a lecture about education reform at UC Bereley; nutritional
yeast on my popcorn at the Red Vic; free Bluegrass music at Golden
Gate Park; Dale Chihuly's glasswork exhibit at the deYoung Museum.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I teach young children at a public school in the Bay Area. I also
work for the teachers' union.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Trying new things.
Doing things that are hard.

My radio is usually on KPFA or KFOG. The podcasts I have on my iPod
are "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me" and "This American Life"
I really like to readl. My tastes are too varied to name just a few
things. I'm curious enough to be open to a lot of different genres
of books and movies. I just read "Salt, Sugar, Fat" and am gearing
up to read "Cooking" after I read "Hiked". Am loving all of my
extra summer time hours to read! I may get ahead of my pile of New
Like good books, I like good movies, but am not opposed to watching
something bad if it's fun, like action movies, spy shows, and
You can't beat the food in the Bay Area. I would love someone to
explore the many restaurants that I have yet to try. I love fresh
produce and do not take it for granted, having grown up on canned
vegetables. The Farmer's Market is my favorite place to shop. I can
be won over with a good bar of dark chocolate. My guilty pleasure
is a well brewed cup of Flying Goat coffee.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
my bikes, my family and friends, my job, good produce, chocolate,
coffee, books (oops, that's 7)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I try to stay aware and informed of what is happening in the world.
I think we live in an exciting and kind of scary time. I like to
try and understand how and why things are the way they are.
The relationships I've cultivated with my family and friends are
strong and I have developed an ability to be compassionate,
forgiving, and understanding because of all of the emotional work
I've done over the years.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
During the summer I may not notice that it is Friday night. During
the school year, I am usually relaxing after a long work week, with
a book or a movie. Or I catch up on the Daily Show or Colbert
