I am a native Houstonian, but have lived abroad on several occassions. I used to be a former Spanish/French H.S. teacher but made a change into teaching ESL to adults a year ago. Way better!! When I am not working I tend to have people over at my place or can been seen riding my bike around town.
I try to live a simple lifestlye and try to keep my focus on the most important things in life, meaning, I try no to get caught up into superficial things nor let over consumerism guide me too much.
Buying local products and enviornmental issues have a tendency to be in my thoughts. I appreciate diversity and am usually drawn to people that are open-minded towards other cultures and ways of thinking.
