My self-summary
I'm a teacher, a mom, a passionate person. I'm separated after a long marriage -- my divorce will be final in a few months. I have three wonderful and crazy teenage sons -- two (twins) are more (sometimes less!) launched and mostly don't live at home; the youngest is in high school. My life is exciting, sometimes scary, and above all OPEN right now.
What I’m doing with my life
After 20 years of classroom teaching, directing plays, and working with other teachers, I plunged into a doctoral program in education 4 years ago and am almost finished. In between laundry, helping sons with girlfriend drama, and walking around Fresh Pond, I work on my dissertation. I also work as an adjunct professor at various colleges in the Boston area.

Having some great sushi and a glass of white wine with a friend -- if we are doing well, the sushi comes after a yoga class. Taking a hot bath, walking Jon Stewart with my sons, reading in bed.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm the child of an alcoholic.
You should message me if
You love good coffee, stopping the car when there's a really great story on NPR or a great song that you have to hear again, making out like you did at 16, having passionate arguments, dancing, sleeping in, listening to long stories about people in my family...
