I am an active, fun, and easy going person who is always looking for a new way to challenge myself (mentally or physically). I have high ambitions for myself and goals I work hard to meet. I am a transplant from the Midwest, and I have lived in Colorado for 6 1/2 years. I have only lived near Denver since August. Although I miss my family (and that lakes!!) on a daily basis, I can't imagine leaving Colorado...anytime soon at least! I am a teacher, but I get the opportunity to work in a very unique setting compared to past jobs in public schools. I work with at-risk boys at a therapeutic residential treatment center, and although the boys "keep me on my toes" DAILY, I often wonder how I got so lucky to land such an incredible and rewarding job. So in short--yes--I love my job :)
I am always looking to meet new people and make new friends, and I tend to gravitate towards people that are kind, caring and passionate about life. I like someone who has an open mind and someone I can have a great conversation with. Even more important than that though, I am a pretty big fan of laughter. In fact, I really do believe a good laugh can cure any ailment...which is why I find myself often attracted to a person that has an infectious sense of humor. I also find humility extremely attractive...confidence too, but I think there is a difference between the two. There is a fine line between confidence and arrogance and I believe the difference is the level of humility that person possesses. I am looking for someone who is driven and also passionate about life. A fun-loving and caring person who challenges me in more than one way.
