My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
i'm an outdoorsy kind of girl. i like to be with my friends. i love being with my family. i like to be in the mountains. i love walking and hiking and ropes courses and ultimate frisbee. i love being a public school teacher. i want to be the change i want to see in the world. i try to be peace. i consider myself very self-reflective, forward thinking, and liberal. i teach a semester-long study of human impact and climate change to 7th and 8th graders. we begin with the water cycle and groundwater, take a deep look at industrial vs. organic farming, spend considerable time understanding oil and its by-products (specifically plastic and gasoline), and then we write a magazine about climate change. i feel incredibly empowered when a part of the solution. my students are going to fix this planet, that i believe.

i love traveling and want to do more of it.

i'm not a partier or bar hopper. i'd rather enjoy myself with someone or friends somewhere that fosters conversation.

i once submitted an essay to the this i believe program on npr. unfortunately, i never heard back. it was about summer and its power to revive the soul of a teacher.

i am compassionate and conscientious. i also have an unending love of animals, even ones that scare me. once when backpacking in aspen, co, my friend and i encountered a mountain lion. i barked at it until it was safe to pass. mountain lions are scary.
What I’m doing with my life

i'm a teacher. i'm trying to be a really awesome teacher.

hiking with maddox.

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

i love to read! at the risk of this list making me seem adolescent, most of the books that i have found powerful are labeled young adult. i believe that young adult literature and what perspectives, lessons, norms, and standards it sets for youth is key to understanding what kind of citizens the next generation of leaders will be. those shaped by harry potter and hermione granger or edward cullen and bella swan. i also believe that to be the best teacher i can be, i have to be fluent in KidLit. so feel free to judge me, but understand that if you look at this list and think of me as immature, know that i'm judging you right back ;)
