The one thing I am passionate about...
I am most passionate about being a good person, I'm not perfect, but I want to be someone others can look up to. I am also passionate about children and education. Since I am a mother and teacher, I want children to be successful. I am also passionate about my career and advancement, both educationally and promotionally. I also love to help people, and I am passionate about being the person someone can count on as being a good listener and understanding. I feel that by my being passionate about the welfare of others is one of my positive characteristics.
I typically spend my leisure time
I normally spend it shopping or taking my children to different places. I go out with my friends sometimes, but not every weekend or week night. I love to read, and I spend time just relaxing, since I work very hard during the week. I also love to talk on the phone and search the internet.
The most influential person in my life has been
Respect. If a significant other doesn't respect you, then he will do all of the things that he feels he should do, therefore, trust, love, and commitment will be a forgotten issue. Being a respectful person is one of the things I am looking for in another person.
The first thing people notice about me
They notice my smile, and warm demeanor.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The last book that I have read and enjoyed is my re-reading The Pearl by John Steinbeck in order to teach it to my 7th grade class. This book is about a man named Kino, and his finding "the pearl of the world." His wife Juana thinks that it is evil, and in fact, Kino changed since having the pearl. He is suspicious of everyone, including Juana, and he even killed someone. The pearl is a symbol of evil and it destroys his family. I liked how Steinbeck uses the pearl as a symbol of greed, and how we sometimes place more emphasis on material riches than on love, family, and happiness.
