Hi,I'm Ali and I am from Long Island, NY. I am a third year teacher in Montgomery County. I was a kindergarten teacher my first year and currently teach first grade. I graduated in January 2011 from Towson University with a bachelors degree in Deaf Studies and Elementary Education. I decided to major in Deaf Studies because my aunt and uncle are deaf and I find it very important to be able to communicate with them. I am very close with my family and am not embarrassed to admitt that I talk to my parents at least once, sometimes even twice a day. I would consider myself a down to earth person who tends to get along with everyone. I hate confrontation and usually try to avoid/stay out of it. People would usuually describe me as caring, responsible, and respectful. Even if I might not agree with someone I still respect their opinions.
On my free time I am ok with having the occasional lazy days in my apt wearing pjs, watching a movie, playing games, reading a book. On my non-lazy days I enjoy going shopping, going out to dinner with friends to catch up, and even the occasional bar nights. I will put on a football, baseball or basketball game especially if it happens to be the Giants or Yankees
