I am semi retired from being an elementary school teacher in the Minneapolis Public Schools. I do some contract work for the schools now, and also work as a tax preparer during tax season. My husband and I have lived in Minneapolis near the U of M for about 30 years. We love to tent camp in the summers, and just spent 9 weeks in the Pacific Northwest. Last year (2010) we traveled in East Africa and even climbed Kilimanjaro! We live simply and enjoy getting to know people.
