More About MeFirst and foremost I am a mother of two wonderful, grown children. Even though they don't live with me, I still make it a priority to be a part of their lives. nI worked for many years as a high school science teacher and loved every minute of that work. Now, I have moved into a different job (still in education), and I love that too. What I have found is that every few years I have to do something really different with my job. I get bored with the same old, same old, easily. I love a challenge, and am very motivated to push myself to get better at new skills.nI am really easy going (Its really hard to make me angry), however, don't get the idea that I am a pushover. Basically, if I have an opinion about something, you will most likely hear it. Most people would describe me as outgoing and outspoken, and I guess I would have to agree with that.
Hobbies / Interests / ActivitiesWhen I have spare time (which is not often) I love to read, watch movies, hang out with friends and family, and travel.
Who I Would Like to MeetAn absolute must in a partner for me is a good sense of humor. I love to laugh, and someone who could help me with this is preferred. I want someone who is not afraid to try new things, and someone who can be honest and upfront with what they want and what they think. I don't have time for mind games or manipulation. I'm going to tell you what I think, and my partner should give me the same courtesy.
Favorite MusicI like all kinds of music (except rap--not a big fan), but I really prefer classic rock and roll
Favorite TV ShowsMy favorites are The Big Bang Theory, CSI (all of them), Law and Order SVU, The Closer, House, Burn Notice, and Flip This House.
Favorite MoviesI really enjoy suspense and drama, but I also love a great comedy
Favorite BooksThe most recent thing I read was one of my books for one of my master's classes. I am currently working on a second master's in Administration. But last month I did manage to read The Lovely Bones--just for fun.
Skills/TalentsI am really good at getting along with many different types of people. I am also a good listener, because I find that a lot of people come to me for advice or just to vent. I am very easy going and a problem solver.
Favorite FoodPretty much anything chocolate is my favorite, but I do love Italian food also.
Favorite PlacesMy absolute favorite place to go is anywhere near the ocean. I love hanging out on the beach!
Life GoalsMy short term goal is to finish my Master's in Administration. In the long term, I would like to be an assistant principal and possibly a principal.
