I have a number of things that I'm quite passionate about. The top two in their broadest terms are nature and youth. My degree from Simpson College was in Biology because of my love for animals and the outdoors in general. There are few things that I enjoy more than exploring the woods and finding any critters I can.
I have spent the last five summers working at a summer camp, and I love working with youth. That's the reason I've decided to go back to school in order to become a high school science teacher. I feel like it is the best way for me to bring my passions together and make a positive impact in the lives of others. I'll be doing student teaching this coming fall, so I'll be on the search for a job next spring, and luckily for me, science is a high need area right now. I'm also substitute teaching while I'm taking classes, and I love it so far.
I've had some wonderful opportunities to travel to some amazing places, and I can't wait until I can go to another new place. I enjoy traveling and am almost always willing to take a trip. I'm looking for someone that I can have fun with, but someone who will challenge me to be better. I want someone who can engage in an intellectual conversation and can prove that they have the ability to think critically. I really enjoy learning new things, and I'm always open to it.
Anyways, that's a bit about me, and if you're interested feel free to contact me. I enjoy meeting new people.
I hold pretty strong to no movies on the first date, as well as places that tend to be loud. First dates should allow conversation because that's the purpose of them. Dinner is a great first date and it can be followed up by a nice walk in a park.
