I grew up in Boston, went to Tufts, and lived in London for a year.
I make a mean crepe. I love the outdoors and almost anything in the
sun. I have summer vacation (yes, you should be jealous). I’m
sarcastic, I overuse parentheses and the word "actually," I eat all
the free samples at outdoor food markets, I read the NY Times
compulsively, I misuse idioms (I may have once said, "Not on my
belt"), and I can be very gullible (my Australian friends convinced
me that they ride kangaroos to school as children).
What I’m doing with my life
Learning middle school science two days before I teach it to my
I’m really good at
the teacher glare
Super Smash Brothers (for N64)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'll eat pretty much anything aside from fish, but I'll take mac
and cheese any day. I have eaten Sabra hummus for lunch for the
majority of the past 3 years. I pretend to be a "foodie" and try
new foods and restaurants.
The Daily Show, 30 Rock, House of Cards, The Simpsons, and Homeland
are my top tv shows. I'm in the middle of season 4 of West Wing and
love it. And no, I don't watch Breaking Bad (and no, just because
I'm a science teacher, it doesn't mean I don't cook meth).
Currently re-reading Ender's Game, because all my students are
reading it. And, if memory serves, it was awesome.
The six things I could never do without
cheese (I'm partially lactose intolerant, and I still eat it)
The New York Times
Levain chocolate chip walnut cookies
my dog Chip
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what part of the world to visit next (I've spent the last two
summers traveling around China, Japan, and Southeast Asia in
...and whether these essays should start with a capital letter and
end with a period.
On a typical Friday night I am
taking it easy, having a beer/wine/cider, watching a tv show/movie,
or getting dinner with friends
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I go to sleep at the ungodly hour of 10pm on school nights.
Teaching does that to people.
You should message me if
you can handle sarcasm, are smart/slightly nerdy, have an awesome
smile, and might want to meet up!
