I'm a high school history teacher who is looking for the same satisfaction in his personal life that he's found in his professional life. I love my job...why is that? I love the fact that I get to help my students understand their world by discovering history, political science, and even economics. I enjoy exploring the highs and lows that come with caring about our community and our world. I love watching my students having those "aha!" moments they will never forget. I love seeing how much they can grow and mature in just four years...and sometimes just four minutes. I enjoy challenging them to leave the world a better place than they found it. I love advising Student Council, Mock Trial, and countless other groups where my students can discover and pursue their passions. I love the fact that I can be a shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen, or the foot to give a swift kick in the rear when they can't find it anywhere else.
So what does that have to do with Ms. Right? Well it let's you know just what you're getting in me. Somebody who knows his place in the world and relishes it. Somebody who is honest, loyal, stable, and reliable. Somebody who communicates for a living. What about a sense of humor? I have to keep forty teenagers engaged for two hours at a time...I wouldn't have made it this far without a well developed sense of humor.
So who am I looking for? Someone who wants to be with people who make a difference in the world. Someone who is passionate...the object of that passion isn't as important as having a passionate approach. Someone who is looking for a partner to share the really important parts of their day with...the stuff that made them laugh out loud and cry without shame.
I think she's the most beautiful woman in the world...and I don't care what anyone else thinks. She's kind, smart, and to paraphrase Robin Williams from Good Will Hunting, we will love each others imperfections because they make us who we are.
Too much? Time will tell...let's start with "hello".
"Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest."
- Mark Twain
