I'm a positive person that is constantly discovering new things about myself. I like to stay active and have run a number of half marathons (and 1 full marathon) and have pretty shiny medals to show for them! Yes, I got bling! I also coach the cross country team at my work. However, sometimes I revel in my nerdiness and watch sci-fi shows and act like a TV junkie watching Oprah (Don't judge! LOL). I like to challenge myself and am not afraid to face challenges that come up in my life because ultimately I know that it will open up new opportunities and experiences for me. I adore browsing the few book stores that still exist nowadays and hanging out with my friends and as nerdy as it sounds, lesson planning with colleagues via skype. Hey, I'm a teacher and I actually love my career! :-) It's sometimes grueling, difficult and painful dealing with teenagers but when you feel like you've made a difference, then it's all worth it.
