Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Summarize myself, huh? I'm not a big fan of the self-summary, but
I'll give it a shot. I'm a first grade teacher at a language
immersion public charter school in DC. I am passionate about my
career, but also a bit frustrated by the current state of public
education, especially urban public education. Bourbon is delicious,
so is cake. Character is extremely important in both people and
places. I am a dog owner. Despite the time and expense of having a
pet I can't really imagine not having a dog (or two) in my life. My
Beagle mix is 12 years old and now gets her exercise stealing food
off of the counter. I also have a rambunctious foster dog. He is
looking for a home if you are looking for a dog! I despise and fear
creatures with more than four legs that choose to live indoors.
Being outdoors keeps me sane, but I have only been camping once -
in the rain. I hope to spend some of my upcoming summer break
traveling, possibly camping. I feel at home in the city, but
appreciate the quiet life more and more. I am slow to get to know
new people, but according to friends an interesting combination of
silly, warm and tough once I do. Fall remains my favorite season in
Boston. Spring in DC is so beautiful it surprises me every year.

The Devil in the White City is a favorite book. I don't read a ton
of non-fiction, but I loved this book. I have some authors I really
enjoy, but my favorite thing is discovering a new book or author I
love - oh the possibilities!
I rarely watch movies. I like to watch movies, so I don't know why.
Some I remember really enjoying - Little Miss Sunshine, Fargo, Elf,
Capote, Pan's Labyrinth, Office Space. I know there are
