I am thoughtful, giving, and hopefully fun.
Had my Bat Mitzvah in June 2011 (ok, I'm a late bloomer).
ESE Specialist/teacher at a local charter school.
Completed my 2nd Master's -- this one in Visual Impairments.
Did my internship in Utah -- and loved river rafting and spending a week on a houseboat with a visually impaired couple.
Very active with my local Relay for Life.
Stay very busy -- but would love to find a fellow traveler.
I'm tenacious and follow through with what I start -- panic in the middle sometimes -- but preserve and surprise myself with my successes.
In the last few years I've:
-- decided to go to Israel and did. Volunteered at a board school for people with Developmental Delays - loved it -- and got to see Paris and Rome too!!!
-- had my Bat Mitzvah. it was much harder than I expected and my son going to the hospital that week didn't help. Moved it to my backyard, cut my guest list - survived a rainstorm when I needed to be setting up -- and crossed another thing off my Bucket List
-- went back to school, again. Ok, I value education.
-- got promoted from ESE (Special Ed) teacher to ESE Specialist (more administrative) -- and have been told I do a good job at it
-- went to Utah to do my student teaching. Staying with my supervising teacher was quite interesting.
Saw bison in Florida and tubed a river.
So... what's next? Something I'll be good at!
(And I have a nice backside)
Movies -- love to go. Guess chick flicks, suspense, human interest -- and movies of Broadway shows. If preview attracts my attention -- dvd is on library shelf. No blood, no gore -- no senseless violence.
My family is a theater family -- we use to argue about best show -- RENT, Les Mis, Wicked, Hairspray, Avenue Q, old stuff -- just like to see live theater -- and rarely get to go.
Depends on where -- classics like Beach Boys, Chicago -- dance music and silly stuff like Ya'alli or Raffi (yes -- that a test to see how hard you'll work to see what I like). Love Cary Cooper and Tom Prasado Rao -- use to believe their Love Songs for Grown-ups. Love Rick Recht -- and will drive an hour and a half 3 times a year to hear him.
Pizza -- Uno's in Orlando, Mellow Mushroom in Delray, Pizza Loft in Davie -- or what I can get when I'm hungry. Love Thai, Greek, Israeli -- like spicy and try to eat healthy.
I think a lot !
having Shabbat dinner with friends
wishing I was at the theater (big theater geek)
With my kids (miss having them nearby but will meet up sometimes)
With my friends
sorry to sound shallow -- but if buying me a cup of coffee is a hardship for you -- please don't contact me. I'm generous and would gladly share the little I have - and want the same generosity shown me. Not looking for a rich man -- but don't need someone to compare how hard it is with. I always find a way to take care of myself and my kids -- just don't want to be reminded that it is a struggle at times.
