I'm an early childhood special education teacher. I love teaching and learning about kid's development and am in total agreement that as a home visitor I get paid to go to the parks, library story times and to play with play dough. My area of focus is in social/emotional supports and brain development.
Reading for fun is the main way I get a little down time in. The book I'm reading right now is called the Book Thief. It's all right, it takes an interesting spin on death as a character and his witty personality.
I enjoy cooking when it is not the end of the day and dinner is needed immediately and the dishes then miraculously disappear afterwards. Neither happens, but one can dream. My go to cuisine is Mexican and Asian. I just started making bread and love the way baking bread fills the house with its traditional aroma.
The vacations I'm planning for this summer are a train trip to Denali and a few day trips to my favorite Alaskan small towns. I am looking forward to summer for hiking, camping and some fishing lessons.
My faith and gratitude are essential to me and keep me grounded. My priorities are putting God first and strengthening my Christ Centered home.
This is my first time trying online dating and although it's (gulp) a little unnerving, it seems like a fun and practical way to chat with people I wouldn't normally bump into. I work with all women and when I'm not working, I am at kid's activities usually surrounded by moms.
