I’m one of the lucky ones…I adore my job. I shut my door at 8 am every morning and it’s 26 14 year olds and me. Though my life as a teacher remains routine, I find ways to challenge myself both physically and intellectually. It’s what keeps me on my toes, excites and inspires my day-to-day life. For example, I have a legitimate fear of falling don’t quite know when it developed, probably on the ski slopes of Okemo as a young child being challenged by my father. Regardless, I push myself through it walking across the highest canopy bridge in Africa, zip lining through the rainforest of Costa Rica or my yearly summer cycling through the hills of Fairfield County.
I am devoted to my family (this includes my Viszla Roxy). We have a deep connection and loyalty to one another. My friends bring out the best in me and I hope I bring out the best in them. With them I run ½ marathons, road trip to Maine, dance until I’m ready to drop at weddings, sample 45 wines in one evening, camp in Yosemite during a thunderstorm, and listen to live music under the stars. Surround yourself with amazing people and your life will never be boring.
