My friends would describe me as the super-cool nerd. I'm passionate about teaching (I've been an English teacher in Cincinnati Public my whole adult life), I read a couple of books a week, attend lectures and cultural events, and it seems like I'm always in school myself too! But, I also love to hang out in a cool pub, I'm a terrific salsa dancer, I'll take an impromptu road trip if there's great music to be heard, and I am always up to try new things. Diversity is also important to me. I have friends from all different types of backgrounds, and I love experiencing different cultures, meeting new people, and traveling to new places.
