I moved to Brooklyn less than two years ago from Long Island. Before that I lived in Las Vegas teaching with a low income high school magnet program called VIP. I now teach ESL, Spanish, Gym and Enrichment at a new elementary school for gifted and talented students here in Brooklyn. I love to read and I am a huge movie buff. I think that laughter and trust are the two most important things in life and I surround myself with people who feel the same way. I am close with my family (but not in a creepy way) and my DVR is always almost full. The men in my family are all great cooks and I try to follow in their footsteps by not getting rusty. I feel strange writing about myself in this little box.
