I am an 8th grade English teacher. I love animals, and have two dogs and a cat. I work hard and am looking for someone with the same goals and dreams. I am not interested in someone whose only idea of a good time is to get drunk/party on the weekends. I volunteer two nights a week, when not working on my Masters course work. I own my own home, and work hard for what I have. I am looking for someone who has something to bring to the relationship and is not lazy or has had life handed to them on a silver platter. Life is short and you need to know what you want and take it :) I love to laugh and as my student's say..."am ALWAYS smiling."
