What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now, I'm a middle school English teacher. I love my job, and
have a huge passion around educational issues.
I don't need a guy to work in the same field (much prefer he
doesn't), but do want someone that agrees with my values around
education, and can understand why it's such a passion to me.
Down the road, I anticipate working as a school leader (principal),
or upper-level of an education- or policy-based organization.

initially a little shy in social situations.
