I'm outgoing yet occasionally shy. I generally think things through yet have been known to make an impulsive decision here and there! I can admit when I'm wrong, although you might have a good argument on your hands. I feel connected to the world around me by trying to always experience it with an open mind and heart. Teaching continues to be one of my passions. I love the energy, insight and optimism that children seem to naturally bring to any situation. I am undoubtedly loyal to the people in my life and blessed with a loving family, and friends who are intelligent, open, warm and sincere. My close friends include several I have known since childhood and others that have come into my life a I've gotten older. I'm up for a night out even after a long day and I'm always up for a new (or old) restaurant. I can take a good joke even when it's at my expense, but I rank right back, so watch what you say! I'm playful, and soulful at the same time. My heart is usually the voice I listen to above all else. I trust that it leads me in the right direction.
