My friends have told me that I'm caring, truthful, athletic, laidback, independent, witty, and can be outgoing at times. They know that they can call me whenever they need something, and with out hesitation I’ll be there for them. My family and friends are extremely important to me. I'm close with my parents and sister, and my two sons are a huge part of my life. Growing up I always new I didn’t want to take over my father’s business and I went the teaching route and followed my mother’s career path. What an amazing choice that has been!! I’m lucky enough to teach 3rd grade and work with 8 and 9 year olds. I enjoy developing them into life long learners and solid citizens. You don’t become the most popular teacher in the school unless you are willing to dress up as Beyonce and do a three minute dance in front of 500 plus students and faculty. The legend then grows on a fieldtrip by giving a two hundred plus pound school nurse a piggyback to get her back on to the bus because she couldn't put any weight on her ankle. Can you believe an aquarium doesn’t have a wheelchair that we could have used?!?!? I have the ridiculous pictures for proof thanks to coworkers that apparently had to capture this moment. I definitely appreciate the little things in life. I'm very happy with where I am right now and what I've accomplished...just missing someone to grow old with!!! I'd love to find someone who is outgoing, honest, and has family values. That someone should have the best friend potential that I’m looking for. Common interests are a plus, but I'm open to learning and experiencing new things too. I enjoy laughing—usually at myself…I've been known to trip up the steps often, but I usually act like I meant to do it. This whole experience is new to me. I'm hoping to meet someone that I can have fun with, who I can count on, and of course-physical attraction is important too. If you think you can meet my requirements, I'd love to talk to you!
