part of a typical day:
I love that no day is typical for me. I am thankful for
the opportunity to work at home some days and travel to
different parts of Arizona for work other days. My favorite
part of any day is when a child makes me laugh. Kids inspire
me and I enjoy the opportunities I have to mentor them through
my job. A great day also means I've helped make life easier
for a teacher somehow.
I'd most like to improve:
Tennis, doing math in my head, Spanish, playing the piano,
Softball. I simply love the
game and would play every day if I could. I currently play
twice weekly on co-ed teams and I'm thankful to be able
to play year-round in the Valley of the Sun. My job is also
a hobby because of all the creative latitude I have. I really
love the outdoors too —especially camping in the pines.
I also enjoy reading and writing non-fiction material about
