I am a teacher who has recently returned to Canada after working in Cairo for the past three years. I love teaching because it's the only job where I can learn something new every day; colour and craft; share in the joy and heartache of teens; and play with kids.
When I am not teaching I like to try out new recipes on unsuspecting friends. This past summer I enjoyed hiking the Arches in Utah, though I miss camping in the Faiyum. I am excited about cross-country skiing this winter, though I never was particularly good but I do enjoy the scenery. I struggle, in a good way, with new languages, and have a passion for travel and new cultures. I hate it when people spit on the sidewalk. I have a love / hate relationship with running, it clears my head but some mornings it is so difficult to get out of bed. I enjoy making things with my hands and prefer original items over mass produced ones. I am currently working on trying to be more forgiving, more loving, take better care of the people around me and the planet we live on.
