As a teacher, I value the gifts of life and embrace all the people who touch my life everyday. I believe myself to be selfless, patient(Have to be with 29 grade 8s!!) and at times, a goofball, all in good nature of course:) After spending 7 years living in Asia(Japan and Korea) and seeing the world, I believe I have accumulated copious amounts if life experience that have shaped who I am today. I love my family, and I have a super close relationship with my sis who is 9 years younger, and my grandparents who I spend a day a week losing to in scrabble and having them rub it in my face that I am a teacher! I did ballroom dancing with my aunts and would love to continue with someone special! (Can't do the tango with my aunt, lol) In a nutshell(Cannot expose everything!) If you are a good communicator, passionate, loyal, caring, not afraid to put me into place when I get out of line, then I hope we can break the statistics that damper the foundations of love and forever afters. Everything happens for a reason, and sometimes things don't work out, but we learn from them. It took me a long time and hardship to be able to pass such knowledge onto my students.
