I am an educator on my second career. I spend my days with Autistic middle school students with severe disabilities most of them who are nonverbal. I am so fortunate to live within 15 min. of work by bike, and I work with a great team. Despite the challenge of my work the rewards are well worth it.
I grew up in a very rural area of Montana (went to a one room school house for my first 4 grades) and no my last name is not Walton. There are many stories to share from that portion of my life. I traveled and worked mostly in Western US, Then North Eastern US, and I Lived several years overseas in South Korea, and have traveled some in other asian countries as well.
While writing this summary I found that I kept identifying myself or rather my desires for meeting someone too narrowly. One of the biggest questions that I realized that I needed to consider during this online dating process is "what do I expect from a good friend/companion"? I have given this a lot of thought and realize that I don't want to expect anything concrete. But I do have the desire for us to learn about each others lives, and share in each others dreams.
