I am a youthful, energetic mother of two girls (8 &14), who loves her job and her life at this stage. I am confident, intelligent, and open to new opportunities and experiences. I have lived in Boston, MA and Bend, OR. I love both coasts and have a knack for dichotomy (i.e. I appreciate diversity and tradition equally.) I feel so lucky to work with amazing high school students daily teaching English, and enjoy the intellectual discourse these students provide. I was raised Catholic, but left the religion at age 15. I have been interested in converting to Judaism since I was 18. More to come on that issue later. I love traveling, but doesn't everyone? I've recently taken two trips to Europe and would love to explore more of the continent.
