I'm an Ohio girl born, raised, and currently living. :) I teach a fantastic group of first graders and plan on teaching first grade until I retire. I'm an active person that needs stimulation. Little people give me energy and keep me on my toes! I love their innocense and perspective on life. Everything is better with glitter, stickers, and prizes!
I tend to get myself involved in all kinds of things. One minute I'm painting for a HYPE (a local professional group) and the next I'm transporting 3 dogs to Columbus. Then I will randomly join a soccer or softball league! I like to volunteer my time. I am so thankful for the life I live and want to enjoy it as much as I can.
I don't have a problem talking with anyone. I can carry on a conversation with man/woman, old/young, outgoing/quiet. People are interesting and I love finding out their "story". If there was one thing that I find frustrating about these sites it's that we (me and come on... I know most of you do too- it's human nature) judge people by what we read and see. The truth is... we can read a profile and analyze it, but still not have a clue to the real person. I believe you need to be involved with a person (meaning physically talk and interact) to learn about a person and decide whether or not you mesh. Normally, pictures don't do anyone justice. So, when looking through everyone's profile- be kind. We are all here (hopefully) to find at least a nice person to shoot an email to and if we're lucky enough someone that can be a best friend and companion. :)
With that said, I probably come across as outspoken and assertive. Well, most of the time I am. I have to be with my little ones each day and with my dogs that I care for. But--- I want to find someone that will ride out the road of life with me and make decisions for us so I can take a back seat....
