This is one of my fav pics of myself. Its from about 2 years ago. I'm currently having an internal debate with myself on whether to grow my hair out long like this again, or hack it off for the summer. Decisions, decisions!

10 Facts

1. I was born in Upstate NY, in a pretty small town. I laugh every time I tell someone I'm from NY, and they automatically reply with "I LOVE NYC," to which I have to reply that I live closer to Canada than to NYC. lol.
2. We're planning on living in a log cabin when we retire
3. My handwriting changes all the time... especially my a's. Sometimes I will write a word and both of the a's in the word will be different
4. I love pasta more than I should... I'm sure it's the cause of all the weight of put on over the years
5. I've read entire books in one day on more than one occasion. If I find a really good book, and can not convince myself to put it down.
6. This is my 4th year teaching. I started when I was 21, fresh out of college.
7. Everything about bad teeth/losing teeth skeeves me out to the point of gagging. Any time one of my students come to me with a tooth that they've just lost I want to vomit.
8. My favorite students are normally the biggest handfuls
9. I'm afraid to drive over bridges and through tunnels. The Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel almost caused me to hyperventilate. 
10. I would love to paint a mural. I'm toying with the idea of painting a "window" on my wall with an Italian country side scene similar to the ones you see in Italian restaurants. 


  1. What a great Idea!! Where in upstate NY are you from? I lived in Buffalo, and Rochester.
    I do that with books as well! Bridges scare the heck outta me, when I had to cross the Mississippi and they were doing construction on the bridge if I hadn't been the one driving I woulda passed out I think!

  2. I do the same thing with my writing {a's especially} and as for favorite students usually being the biggest handfuls, I think it's because there is such a sense of accomplishment when they do things right.

  3. I was born near Syracuse and get the same thing. It's usually like, I've always wanted to go to NYC or I love NYC! So now I just like to tell them I was born in Rome, to get a similar reaction. I've always wanted to go to Italy!
