I've lived in Arizona a little over 2 years and have to admit that my first grade students and my job have been the center of my world since I moved here. I moved here not knowing anyone and most of my friends here are the great girls I work with.
I adore my students and while they make me laugh (and yes, sometimes cry) I think I have the best job. My students are constantly making me smile and giggle, and most of the time it is completely unintentional.
During my summers off, one of the huge perks of being a teacher, I like to guide canoe trips, go camping, travel, and spend time near a lake. I LOVE to travel and try new things. In college I studied abroad and traveled to Australia and New Zealand. In NZ, I went skydiving, bungee jumping, and whitewater rafting and would love to do all three again!
My Bucket List
- Cage diving with great white sharks
- Do a service trip in Africa teaching English
- Travel as much as possible
- Have at least 2 kids
- Do a family vacation every year
- Make a discovery
- Own a house near the water (lake, ocean or river)
- Have a HUGE extended family...I only have 3 first cousins :(
- Learn to enjoy running
- Learn to snowboard
- Climb on REAL rocks
- Play the guitar well
I enjoy spending time with my family and we're really close knit. They are currently living back in Minnesota and I plan on spending a few weeks of my summer with them.
I love spending time with my friends here and I am currently living with three of my best friends. We like to go out to Scottsdale and Westgate on the weekends. I would definitely say that I'm not a party girl. I like to go out on occasion but I'm more comfortable sitting around a bonfire or at a chill bar than going to the club.
I am looking for someone to hangout with and show me some of the great places in Arizona. I'm ready for a relationship if the right guy comes along. The idea of dating multiple people at once is completely foreign to me; if I like you, you'll definitely know it! I might seem a little shy at first, but my friends and coworkers would say I am anything but. Don't be afraid to make the first move and send me a message :)
