I recently returned to the States after living overseas for 8 years. I lived in Bogota, Colombia for six years and Monterrey, Mexico for two years. I taught at private schools teaching Literature. I currently teach 8th grade English / Literature in Queen Creek, Arizona. I do enjoy my job and LOVE my students, but I do miss living Internationally. I take much pleasure in learning about others' cultures while traveling. A perfect travel day for me is to spend time with an indigenous group and learn about their customs and handiwork. (I have actually done this on several occasions.) I enjoy the outdoors, hiking, scuba diving, kayaking, rappelling, caving, etc. By all means, I am not competitive, but I like to try and do it all. Each day, I attempt to find ways to serve those around me. I love the gospel and the constant joy it brings into my life.
