I think we can all agree that we never predicted we'd be here but life has given me plenty of reason to think it's totally unpredictable-this, of course, is no different :) So let me take a few minutes to be egocentric.
I teach high school English, and I'm really passionate about the job I love. Im not a grammar nazi but I can appreciate proper capitalization, a complete sentence and a person who can hold their end of a conversation.
Outside of teaching and attending school to obtain my masters, I spend a lot of time with my family, especially my mom who I admire. I like to jog and I enjoy sports; the Cards, the Blues and Mizzou consume my free time in October. We live in a great state for sports, especially when you're there in person. I like the thrill of a good find at a resale shop or creating something really artsy. I'll try just about anything but if I can't do it well, I will start laughing uncontrollably to hide any sort of embarrassment. Goes without saying, I treasure my friends as much as I do my family and career.
I have values and core beliefs which are important to me; I don't want to just spout them off here, as it wouldn't do them justice. That's something you'll just have to find out in due time :)
