I am an educator who has very recently moved into administration. I taught in Philly public schools for 7 years and am now the principal of a small independent school in North Philly. It's hard as shit, I'm not gonna lie, but I love this job and I love the kids and families with whom I work.
Other random, but potentially revealing, things about me... I used to be a Classicist and a pastry chef... my brother is one of my best friends, we live parallel lives, and I wish we lived in the same city... I have a dirty, foul, totally juvenile sense of humor, which might be why I get along so well with 5th graders... I have been called "intimidating" too many times not to believe it, but I don't believe it... I turned myself into a runner at the age of 34... I have strong opinions, and I am not shy about expressing them... sometimes, I snort when I laugh... I had a house full of pets (3 cats, a snake, and the occasional foster dog) up until a year ago, when a fire in my neighbor's place turned my life upside down. I'm now an animal lover living without animals for the first time in 14 years. It's weird.
