My self-summary
Here I am, a true city girl, in love with Chicago yet always thrilled about exploring the world all around. I am intrigued by happy and passionate people, the warm smiles of strangers and the thrill of reading a good book. The frolicsome nature of children is inspiring to me, as is their unbridled sense of wonder. I like my coffee over conversation and my friends with strong and warm hearts. I am drawn to men who have broad interests, who are kind to strangers, understand humility, embrace the unknown, and actively seek knowledge (it helps if you're a sexy beast!). There's a whole lot more but, if someone is interested, I think they'll ask...

Oh hey, does anyone actually use quickmatch as a prompt to email someone...I rarely reach out first, but I think it would be cool if a few guys had the cajones!

I am a lover of sunshine, creative tendencies, and passionate minds.
What I’m doing with my life
These days, I am a teacher who gets more hugs in a day than most people share in a month. LUCKY Me! Lifelong learning is a passion for me as well as a personal duty. Without learning, how could I continue to love life? I share my life with my two beautiful children who are generous with their smiles and their love. And I have two lousy cats.
I’m really good at
I am an amazing hopscotch player - highly competitive, liners don't count. I have an amazing green thumb, dogs think I'm the best, I am a reliable friend, and I am really good at putting things together.
The first things people usually notice about me
I really have no idea. Hmmmm....
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Hmmm, books, books, books! I love Anna Karenina, The Adventures of Kavalier and Klay, The House on Mango Street, Capote, The Shipping News, Steppenwolf, The Miracle Life of Edgar Mint, All the Names, LOTR, Crime and Punishment.

All kinds of music, from super loud to gently soothing, it just depends on my mood. Movies are a passion but lately, I haven't seen enough. The Boxer, Amelie, El Mariachi, The Station Agent, The Wizard of Oz, Totoro, Elizabeth, The Omen, I'll always love Wild at Heart, and yes, Star Wars. Lately, my favorite is The Dallas Buyers Club.

As for food, it is more the company than the food that counts. There is almost nothing better than enjoying tasty food with engaging company.
Six things I could never do without
Books, Sunshine, warm hearted friends, pit bulls, my girls, my family, T-shirts and boots (8).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend an inordinate amount of time thinking about how children learn and more importantly, how all children deserve learning opportunities and experiences that will help them succeed. Toss in a bit of time for deciding what I should do next in my life...
On a typical Friday night I am
That depends on where my kids are. The away weekends I try to get out as much as possible. Of course, I have to get my me time taken care of as well. A bit of solitude refreshes my mind and heart. My Fridays are often spent with a friend, at a movie, play, or just out somewhere, people watching.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I never learned how to swim, but I like fishing!
You should message me if
Message me if you value a good story, you have a strong heart, a confident walk, a passion for theater, you crave the outdoors, good food, and you fight crime. Fighting crime to me simply means, you have a sense of social responsibility and consequently, put positive things into the world.
The two of us
