I love my life and I love what I do with it.
My students span all four years of high school. I teach just about everything from writing to chemistry, which is why I call myself "jack." They mean the world to me and it gives me a lot of pleasure to work with teens everyday, especially ones that do not live with the parents or the type of household I grew up in. I'm called a Mrs. and my last name is butchered every way imaginable, but that stuff doesn't bother me.
After work, I can be often found tutoring middle school students, giving home instruction to more teens, working out, or attending events at school or friends' events. I'm not your typical "have summers off" teacher. I teach summer school, tutor, and take classes…with plenty of fun in between.
I love to explore. Take me to the city, the water, the countryside, a winery, a local park, restaurant, etc…it doesn't matter. Being outside is much preferable for me.
You should know that I'm a confident "take-charge' kind of girl. I'm also extremely loyal to my family, friends, and students. It's in my DNA being an older sister and working in leadership positions since I was thirteen. I'm passionate about topics in education, health, nutrition, fitness, animals, and the environment. I'm my father's daughter (and have tremendous NJ pride) so I root for the yanks and the giants. If you prefer other teams, I won't shut you down it's not that serious to me.
I'm a huge animal lover and recently adopted 2 cats - a brother and sister. They both have personalities similar to a typical friendly, energetic dog. A huge plus if you love animals, too (and if you are allergic to mine, consider speaking to the doc or taking Claritin!).
I have my preferences in guys I date. Although I have a strong personality, the funny thing is that I'm very easy to please. I'm not your typical girl. For example, literally in one day, I could check and pump air into my own tires, get my nails done, look at boutique jewelry in Millburn windows all while going for a 2-mile run. I'm proud to be able to enjoy rugged outdoor hikes, shed sweat in the gym, and maintain my girly side, too. As you can see, I have a lot of different interests and layers, so if you can make me laugh, hold an intelligent conversation, and demonstrate ambition, then thumbs up. I believe myself to be strong and confident so therefore I'm drawn to strong, confident personalities, too, but with boundaries of course. Most importantly, I'm very transparent, honest, and genuine. If I care about someone, I will go to the moon and back because it's just the right thing to do. It would be uh-mazing to find someone to reciprocate.
Impress me because I know I can impress you :)
