My self-summary
The tl;dr version is that I'm a "Nice Jewish Girl" who swears like a sailor, works in elementary education, is socially progressive, and can bake a mean cupcake.

The longer version:

I was born in the Detroit suburbs, moved to DC for college, and haven't really looked back. While I've been out of Michigan for a decade, I still say pop, love the Detroit Red Wings, played ice hockey in college, and prefer 2*F winter days to 90*F summer days.

I studied Criminal Justice & Public Policy in college and grad school, and while I don't work in the field, I'm still passionate about it, particularly the Death Penalty and sentencing guidelines/reform. I'm also particularly interested in education policy. However, I tend to not be too into politics outside of my pet interests.

I work with children (K-5), so sometimes my sense of humor can be a bit...immature, you know, to appeal to the younger set. Sometimes I need somebody to elbow me and let me know I'm not in elementary school anymore.
What I’m doing with my life
I teach first grade in a high-poverty, low-performing public school.
I’m really good at
cupcake baking, flip cup, typing really fast (110+ wpm), and oversharing.
The first things people usually notice about me
My potty mouth and snark.
Six things I could never do without
My laptop, fitbit, chocolate, oven for cupcake baking, my car I guess (it's really useful), and craigslist!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
self-improvement, hot button issues in criminal justice, education policy and how it works to maintain the status quo rather than being the great equalizer people like to say it is
On a typical Friday night I am
Either in bed watching Netflix or meeting some friends for drinks. Occasionally babysitting because if I'm going to just be sitting around watching TV, I might as well do it on somebody's couch and get paid for it, right?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I dropped an F-bomb at my friends' wedding in front of the bride and groom, rabbi, videographer, and everybody else who was part of the wedding party when I made a mistake in signing the marriage contract.

I almost bought a wedding package at an auction because it was such a good deal despite not even dating anybody. I figured that would be a good way to ensure I would never need it.
You should message me if
You lean to the left but not so far left to be 100% anti-religion (I wouldn't consider myself to be religious, but Judaism is still a part of who I am)

You're not looking for casual sex. Been there, done that, bought the T-shirt. It's not for me.

You're not so self-important that you can't have a picture up here. Nobody's job prevents that.

Oh, and if the first words out of your mouth when you meet somebody new are not "what do you do?" or "where do you work?".

Also, if you're not geographically undesirable :)
The two of us
