As an elementary school teacher, much of my energy and spirit is devoted to work. I am inspired there and challenged and sometimes overwhelmed by the intensity of the days. I work at a neat school that is based on experiential learning and self direction.
This year I am aiming for more fun and my feet are itching to travel. With summers off I am often torn between my gardening aspirations and my travel bug. All types of outdoorsy things appeal to me and I enjoy camping and exploring the mountains. Science and artsy activities also call to me.

Music as revealed by Pandora stations and car radio includes Norah Jones, Bruno Mars, Buddy Guy, NPR station, Jazz station, classical station, Kirtan CD with acoustic guitar. I love acoustic guitar music. I especially enjoy live-music and outdoor music festivals or concerts are even better.
T.V. show guilty pleasure is Breaking Bad even though it freaks me out because I grew up in Albuquerque.
Book themes of late: historical fiction--trilogies when possible, personal growth/spirituality themes.
Favorite foods: dark chocolate, most ethnic foods, especially Indian, good New Mexican green chili!
