My self-summary
Hey there! My name is Sara. I am a high school English / Social Action teacher from the north side of Houston. I am a proud Aggie girl and just completed my masters in counseling. I really love to travel. In addition to traveling all over the U.S., I have been to Australia, Africa, and many parts of Europe. India is next on my list.

My heart is geared towards service and social justice issues. Currently I teach a social justice course at my high school. I love being able to bring students into the reality of real humanitarian issues that are happening in the world.

I am really active in my church and my faith in Jesus is the cornerstone of my life. I love music (I play a little guitar and piano, as well as sing) and I often lead worship at my church.

Also for those who are familiar with Myers Briggs, I am an INFJ.

Those are the basics, I guess! :-)
What I’m doing with my life
Right now school pretty much dominates my life. I love my job. Teaching is really challenging, but I really feel that I am making a difference and that is so important to me.

Eventually, as I mentioned, I plan to transition out of teaching to work in a counseling practice of some kind. I don't know how far down the road that will be, though.
I’m really good at
One thing I am not really good at: bragging! This question is hard for me.

I would say that I really care about people and their lives. I am a good listener. I look at the bright side of a situation and I don't let little things get the best of me.

I am also good at grading stacks of really bad Romeo and Juliet essays without losing my mind! :-)
The first things people usually notice about me
I think people notice my smile / positive attitude. I have people tell me a lot that I am always happy. People also notice my eyes. I'm not even sure exactly what color they are. Blue? Green? I don't know.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
So hard!

Books: I am an English teacher, so this could go on for days. Top favorites - Of Mice and Men, Our Town, Redeeming Love, Alas Babylon, The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, Letters to a Young Poet, Water for Elephants

Music: Adele, Mumford and Sons, Foo Fighters, Hillsong United, Audrey Assad, Ray Lamontagne, The Civil Wars, Dave Barnes, Brooke Fraser, Lady Antebellum, the list goes on...

Food: Sushi and Mexican would probably be my two favorites.
Six things I could never do without
1.) Grace
2.) My family & friends (a given, I know, but I'm still listing it!)
3.) A job I love
4.) My Border Collie, Dylan
5.) My Kindle
6.) Sushi
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Lesson plans, new ways of teaching...

The future....

Current events, humanitarian issues around the world...
On a typical Friday night I am
Often with my family or hanging out with friends. I am perfectly happy with a good movie or book, playing games with people I love (bonus points if you have played Settlers of Catan or Cards Against Humanity before!), etc. It doesn't take much to make me happy.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Humm... I saw Nickelback in concert when I was in high school. I don't care who you are; that's pretty embarrassing.

I also really like Hallmark original movies. They all have pratically the same plot and are totally cheesy, but I can't help it. I love them all. Hey, I'm a romantic.
You should message me if
You know the correct use of a semi-colon? Kidding. Impeccable grammar is not required.

You think we might have something in common, you want to get to know me a bit better, or if you just need someone to talk to.
The two of us
