My self-summary
My name is Mark and I was born and raised just outside of Rochester, NY. I love my home town/city and always talk it up to people who will listen(because it's pretty cool)! I moved to Virginia to pursue a career as a high school Spanish teacher. I enjoy bar trivia, disc golf, and outdoor activities. I'm a longtime fan of the Chicago Cubs and the Buffalo Bills. While in my car, I'm usually listening to 103.7 or a Weezer cd because I don't have an ipod. Also, being from Western New York I call what most people would call "soda" by the name "pop". Finally, I mispronounce the word bagel. I really enjoy running and mystery novels.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm really enjoying about to start my sixth year of teaching high school Spanish outside of Richmond. Still exploring the Richmond area and all it has to offer. Looking forward to chaperoning a summer trip to Spain with my school this year (for the 8th time) I'm preparing to run the Richmond Marathon for the fourth time. This spring I'll also be coaching JV girls soccer.
I’m really good at
Being loyal and generous to my friends and family. Volunteering to help out my students and colleagues. Being a loyal fan of the Cubs and Bills year after painful year. Pretty good at knowing trivial things. Genuinely appreciating simple and everyday things. Making the best of any given situation and staying positive.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a cool scar on my left arm from a sledding accident (though people tell me I should say I was saving a baby from a shark).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - Catcher in the Rye, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Patricia Cornwell books

Movies - Big Lebowski, Bottle Rocket, Tommy Boy, Office Space, The Prestige, Grind, Gladiator, Primal Fear, The Sandlot, The Shining

Shows - Seinfeld, The Simpsons, Law and Order (all varities), The Office, 30 Rock

Music - Weezer,Ben Kweller, Rilo Kiley, The Rentals, Incubus, Credence Clearwater Revival, Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Phantom Planet (and not just the song from "The OC"), Beastie Boys, Smashing Pumpkins, 90s alt rock in general, The Avett Brothers, The Silver Jews

Food - Mashed potatoes, Chick Fil A, Diet Flavored Colas, Stews and chilis, anything hearty and delicious. Food in general is pretty great. Not very picky at all...just no mayonnaise.
The six things I could never do without
1. My family
2. My water bottle
3. My contacts/glasses (I'd be pretty blind).
4. The Chicago Cubs
5. Cash in pocket
6. A good pen
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I can improve my teaching.
On a typical Friday night I am
Unwinding after the week and making an effort to get out there and enjoy the limited time of the precious weekend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I watch some really trashy reality tv usually reserved for teenage girls like Teen Mom and The Real Housewives series.
