To get a small glimpse of who I am and what I'm passionate about, I'll tell you what I do for a living. I work with autistic and emotionally disturbed teenage boys at a school dedicated to autistic children K-12 grade. I also work in a few of the students home programs. If you are not privy to the autistic spectrum world, I help students with their academic work, but most importantly I help them maneuver in "our world." I help them think socially, how to preform basic functions/tasks, how to self regulate and how to advocate for themselves. I'm not a credentialed teacher, but I do teach a variety of subjects, create curriculum and my specialty is to manage student's severe behaviors i.e. students who become physically aggressive (throwing punches, trying to stab, throwing heavy objects), severe mood swings etc. I'm able to balance being calm, kind, accepting and then on a turn of a dime I can be like a parole officer. I love what I do and currently I'm going through a possible career change within my own organization.
*** This just in (as of 12/27/12), I'm the school's new front office manager!
I'm looking for a good guy, someone who is not into playing games, who is goal oriented and someone who would like to be in a relationship. I know I'm not everyone's cup of tea. Some say I'm too nice, too opinionated, too (in all sorts of aspects) strong, too tall, too short, too this and too that. I was raised not to be a dumb bunny, not to be a fickle female and to stand up for myself. On the flip side, my loving parents taught me to be kind and patient of others and be open to new ideas and to find beauty/joy in all things. I would like to find someone who has similar values and way of being.
