My self-summary
I’ve lived in many places and have left bits of my heart in each one, but my roots are in Philly.

I like to climb trees and rocks but always scare myself silly doing so.

I bike year-round and prefer it when it's 50 degrees and sunny.

I have two dogs who found me when I was living on a Reservation out West; they are fantastic creatures.

I dance in my room to 90s hip hop and belt out Neko Case songs whenever time permits.

I serenaded my fellow backpackers this summer since they asked. I had four songs: two of the songs were by Neil Young, one was by John Prine, and one was by Leonard Cohen. Next step: learning how to play a guitar because it will go really well with my repertoire and with my fire pit. Can you help me with this?

In addition to all of the above, I read, I write, I run, I yoga, I save up for summer travels, and I have a thing for nostalgia and live music. I'm curious, thoughtful, and love taking risks.
What I’m doing with my life
Mostly teaching high school students things about reading, writing, and life and constantly revising my curriculum.
I’m really good at
Listening, going on adventures, sleeping in, cartwheels, giving compliments, and kissing.
The first things people usually notice about me

Lately my students have been giving me a lot of compliments on my cardigans, so maybe people notice whichever teenage fan-club cardigan I happen to be wearing.
