The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about my family, my friends, my pets, and maintaining my home. In my job, I am passionate about using my position in public education to improve learning opportunities for all children. I enjoy traveling to new places and meeting people whose life experiences differ from my own.
I typically spend my leisure time
I enjoy spending time with family and friends, improving my home, shopping for the latest fashions, reading about and discussing new ideas, eating out in great restaurants, and traveling to warm places. I also love to dance!
The most influential person in my life has been
A great sense of humor, an adventurous spirit, honesty, integrity, and thoughtfulness
The first thing people notice about me
That I am interested in learning more about them
The last book I read and enjoyed
I recently read Outliers, The Story of Success, by Malcolm Gladwell. According to Gladwell, all it takes to be successful is being the right person in the right place at the right time, and something often overlooked - thousands of hours of practice! He uses great examples to prove his point, like Bill Gates and the Beatles.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Having a great relationship with two healthy, happy, successful adult children
- Having a job that inspires and challenges me
- Living in a setting that continually reminds me of beauty in the world
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That I have a creative side!
Friends Describe me as
Good listener, Hard Working, Intelligent, Warm
