I am finishing up my PhD in urban education at the University of North Carolina - Charlotte. Prior to going back to school I taught English language arts at the middle and high school level for 7 years.
I travel whenever possible... my last big trip was the summer of 2010 when I traveled with my sister to Paris, Nice, Bastia, Cape Town, Johannesburg, and Rome....and we met up with my brother and friends for the World Cup.
My boyfriend, Shawn, and now world travelling partner are planning on watching as many professional soccer/futbol matches as possible in 2012. Luckily with my sense of direction and technical know-now...in other words, none.... the boy is damn good at all that stuff and more :)
Let's see.... reading, running, writing, Shawn bikes, and we both love the US National Whitewater Center. We work hard and play harder.... but in our mid to late 30s so require a good night's sleep and peaceful beginnings and ends to our days :)
