I moved back to Mequon a few years ago after having lived in New York and DC. I went to NYU, interned a ton, indulged regularly in Broadway-- the works. Now I'm back, and I'm finishing up grad school to get teaching certified and my masters in Secondary and Elementary Education. I'm super excited to start my new job as a 7th grade English teacher in West Bend, so I've just been doing all the stuff that goes along with getting ready for that, buying a library of books, looking for nicky-nacks like wooden signs that say "Dream"-- stuff like that. My favorite quote is what Conan said during his last show-- it describes how I approach life perfectly. "If you work really hard, and you're kind, amazing things will happen." THINGS I LOVE: Gourmet cooking, watching Chris Matthews, Don Draper and Nucky Thompson's suits, decorating with accents of red, and knowing way too much about movies and the Revolutionary War.
