I am a teacher, which is an ultimate passion. I love preparing students for their futures, exploring new concepts and procedures with them, while enjoying all the smiles, and of course helping to help with some of their challenges and sadnesses. Kids are so awesome!
In the nicer weather, I go bicycle riding, rafting, hiking, camping, or perhaps a weekend rendevous to the river, the lake, or the ocean...anywhere with water and trees....Oregon is so diverse and fun.I love shooting pool, reading, and watching movies.
And finally, I have been bitten by the travel bug! In recent years I've gone to Mexico, Canada, Alaska, Italy, and San Francisco! And now I have new plans for another trip!
And just all-around having FUN in the sun!
Latest book I really enjoyed? The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey.
Music? My first choice is Classic Rock, but I mostly like everything except the real twangy country, gangster rap and death metal.
TV? Yes, I do own one, sorry haters! I gotta watch movies, my football, Jeopardy, Jon Stewart, and movies. I don't watch much series television, although that is due to not getting hooked on it.
A few music faves...
Tom Petty, U2, Pink Floyd, Melissa Ethridge, Lynard Skynard, The Guess Who, Cat Stevens, Van Morrison, The Beatles, The Cars, Rolling Stones, Led Zep, Sheryl Crow, Older stuff from Jewel, Bad Company, The Eagles, America, Neil Young, The Doors, Bonnie Raitt, Doobie Bros., David Bowie, Johnny Cash, Mozart, Bach, Strauss, Chopin, and the beat goes on....
Food? Thai Food, Vietnamese, Pizza, Mexican, Steak or Prime Rib, Italian, breakfast, PB&Js, and of course, good ol' home cookin'....
...and please have at least one recent picture of yourself where I can see your beautiful eyes. Don't get me wrong, I do like those pics of you in sunglasses too, but for now I want to see into your eyes....
