The one thing I am passionate about...
I love to spend time with my children, but as they have grown up and left home to start their own life, I don't see them as much as I would like. I really enjoy my career. Although it keeps me busy, I love working with high school students and new teachers. I am preparing for the next stage of my career by going back to school to earn my doctorate. Although another stress, I am enjoying this. For down time I absolutely love the beach. Sitting by the edge of the water with a good book is a wonderful way to enjoy the outdoors and relax.
I typically spend my leisure time
I stay busy, so there is not a lot of leisure time. And in general, I am a bit of a homebody. I do enjoy going to the beach or pool and reading.

The first thing people notice about me
To be honest, I have no idea how to answer this question. Maybe we can chat about it when we meet.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Lately I have been reading a lot of books about education and haven't had the chance to read much as much fiction as I would like On my breaks between semesters I (ashamed to say) enjoy some beach novels, particularly local authors.However, one of my favorites is Anne River Siddons' Outerbanks. This is a story with a lot of twists and turns. I also loved Pat Conroy's Beach Music and recently read South of Broad. After I read those I had to re read it immediately. I wasn't ready to stop living it quite yet. And I love some of the lazy fiction by Dorethea Frank Benton who spins tales of southernese set in the low country of
The three things which I am most thankful for
- my family, especially my children
- my health
- being self sufficient
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That I am more sensitive than they probably first realize. I know that I tend to come across as strong and independent, but I do have a softer side too.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I don't mean to be rude, but in order to reply to you, I do need to have a photo with your profile. I know beauty is only skin deep, but there does need to be a physical attraction in order for anything to get off the ground. I am looking for someone who is intelligent, funny, thoughtful, attractive, honest, kind, fit.... the whole package. So please, upload a photo and let's chat.
