"When I'm sad, I stop being sad, and be awesome instead."
To describe myself in one word, I would say intellectual. I really enjoy learning new things and new experiences. I have a strong desire to learn new things. I also enjoy teaching at various levels. I have been fortunate to have found my passion in life and I am working everyday to make that passion pay the bills (that's the dream right?). I wake up everyday knowing that the work that I do on a daily basis will impact my students for years to come. It is extremely satisfying. I enjoy being outdoors, road trips here in CA, traveling as much as I can. I try to stay up on movies and see quite a few on the big screen.
I stay up to date on current events and generally like to know what is going on in the world. I'm always up for a friendly debate about current issues or politics. Fortunately, part of my job is listening and understanding different points of view. I'm not quick to judge anything or anyone.
