My self-summary
Summarize myself, huh? I'm not a big fan of the self-summary, but I'll give it a shot. I'm a first grade teacher at a language immersion public charter school in DC. I am passionate about my career, but also a bit frustrated by the current state of public education, especially urban public education. Bourbon is delicious, so is cake. Character is extremely important in both people and places. I am a dog owner. Despite the time and expense of having a pet I can't really imagine not having a dog (or two) in my life. My Beagle mix is 12 years old and now gets her exercise stealing food off of the counter. I also have a rambunctious foster dog. He is looking for a home if you are looking for a dog! I despise and fear creatures with more than four legs that choose to live indoors. Being outdoors keeps me sane, but I have only been camping once - in the rain. I hope to spend some of my upcoming summer break traveling, possibly camping. I feel at home in the city, but appreciate the quiet life more and more. I am slow to get to know new people, but according to friends an interesting combination of silly, warm and tough once I do. Fall remains my favorite season in Boston. Spring in DC is so beautiful it surprises me every year.
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching first grade, playing with dogs, and generally enjoying my good fortune.
I’m really good at
listening, carrying heavy objects, read-alouds
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm rather petite.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Devil in the White City is a favorite book. I don't read a ton of non-fiction, but I loved this book. I have some authors I really enjoy, but my favorite thing is discovering a new book or author I love - oh the possibilities!

I rarely watch movies. I like to watch movies, so I don't know why. Some I remember really enjoying - Little Miss Sunshine, Fargo, Elf, Capote, Pan's Labyrinth, Office Space. I know there are others...

I miss Breaking Bad. I love Modern Family. I am now addicted to Game of Thrones.

I love music, but I am terrible with artists and genres. I need a music manager.
Six things I could never do without
my friends, my family, and my dogs - everything else can be replaced
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how lucky I am
On a typical Friday night I am
grateful for the weekend, looking forward to the farmer's market, and ready for some down time
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not willing to admit anything private on the internet.
You should message me if
