My self-summary
I am an active, community minded woman, who enjoys volunteering in my city. I am a teacher of visually impaired students in a city school system, and have been doing so for 30+ years. I love what I do!! I now have a 15 month old puppy, keeping me busy, but happy.
What I’m doing with my life
I have been a teacher for 33+ years, (retirement is actually within reach!) and enjoy working with people. To this end I volunteer in my community at Festival in the Park, a Woman's Club, the Mayor's Comm. for People with Disabilities, Delta Kappa Gamme, Chi Omega alumni, and more. I enjoy travel and have been to Europe twice in the past 2 years, with another trip planned in 2012. I go to NY this summer and the Caribbean this fall. I like to travel here and abroad, and plan to continue as opportunities arise.
I’m really good at
I am generally good at whatever I put my heart into. Though I do realize I have my limits and can't be good at everything!
The first things people usually notice about me
I get lots of compliments on my hair and eyes, and that makes me feel good about myself. I am also on a self-improvement program and am enjoying my walks and work-outs, and friends have noticed!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I enjoy mysteries, historical fiction, most current best sellers, and local Va authors. I don't really have a favorite movie, but like to keep up with what's in the theaters, and either see them there, or by rental. Live theater, symphonies, community theater, etc. I enjoy. My favorites in music are an eclectic assortment: blues, older rock and roll, country, the music I grew up with!
The six things I could never do without
I need a reliable car - for my job and for my social life! My friends who keep me upbeat and positive, I couldn't do without them. My family, though we are spread across the country, we are close and always in touch.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Right now I'm thinking about the possibility of retirement, and what I will do in my spare time. I have friends who are retired, but I'm not quite ready for it. I think about family and friends and possibly meeting someone to share my retirement adventures.
On a typical Friday night I am
I enjoy an evening out with friends; movies, dinners, friendly get togethers, live music, theater, whatever sounds interesting. Or I can stay in and enjoy a good book in front of the fireplace.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'll have to think about this!
