I'm new to the area, just moved down from PA for a teaching job. I've waited for this opportunity for two years, and it is the best job I have ever had! I've discovered that it requires a huge amount of my time, but things are slowly calming down.
I am still working on creating a description of myself. It is never easy to portray yourself on paper, somehow it never sounds quite right. The language tends to be too stiff, formal, lackluster... Kind of like writing a resume for a potential job interview. How I was able to attract the interest of any hiring school district, I'll never know. Just dumb luck, I suppose :)
A few random facts: I am a sucker for a good story. In fact, I love stories in all forms, from print to visual media. I have an extensive list of favorites including classics like Shakespeare and Milton, YA like the Harry Potter and Hunger Games series, and others such as Frankenstein, Lord of the Rings, and 1984. The list goes on and on.
Even though I prefer cuddling up with a cup of coffee, or tea, reading a novel, or watching television, I also enjoy the outdoors. I'm working on getting back into running, I used to run all the time in college and high school, for field hockey. That was before the task of finding a full time job, while working two part time jobs, took over my life. Now that I have a steady, if demanding job, I am eager to get back into an exercise routine. To motivate myself, I signed up for the Color Run. It'll be my first official marathon :)
On another note, I'm a baseball fan and enjoy watching various sporting games. Although, I'm not loyal to a specific teams (except the Phillies). Also, I am not averse to the outdoors, but I'm not a huge wilderness enthusiast. If you dropped me off in the middle of nowhere, with no resources, cell phone, or knowledgeable camping buddy, I would not survive. Still, I am always up for trying something new and outside my comfort zone -- provided I have someone to share the experience with :)
One more thing I should mention, I am an English teacher. Therefore, I tend to be a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to writing narratives. This description may very well change a few times, and in the near future. Also, I am not a fan of "text-speak" in email format. To me, it comes off as lazy and insincere. I don't mind it when texting, after all it does save time, but that is the only place I believe it is appropriate for use. Fair warning.
