Wow. If you would have asked me 10 years ago where I would be, it probably wouldn't have been here. But, in those 10 years, I have earned a Master's degree (almost 2), taught outdoor education in Happy Valley (aka State College, PA), been bait for both a lion and cheetah (I worked at a zoo), and am now teaching the best subject in the world...science. I enjoy the outdoors especially with my golden retriever finding each and every mud puddle there is in a 5 mile radius, because it is "quiet" and peaceful. My weekdays consist of teaching science to at-risk students, so the weekends are for relaxing and spending time with friends and family.
I love to cook, but find that cooking for one isn't as fun as cooking for two. Especially if the other is game for helping in the kitchen. I'm an open book (I do like to read) so if you ask a question, I'll respond. But beware...I spend my day with a middle school homeroom, so you might get a smirk in there as well.
