Hi! My name is Maggie. I am an American (California specifically) currently residing in Zhengzhou, China. I am a teacher and love it! I have a wonderful fiancé (shown with me in my profile pic) - he truly is the light of my life and my best friend. His first Christmas present to me was the book "Stranger in a Strange Land" by Robert A. Heinlein - his favorite book and an apt source of reading material for me as I adjust to living in a big city in a new country. I am very much enjoying the consumption of its words via my eyes (into my brain).
As a guest in someone's home, I am always polite, respectful, and tidy. I tend to be inquisitive, because I like to learn about new places. However, I can also be shy and reserved, so I may not seem super friendly at first, but please trust that I am. Most (concession for the small percentage that does not) people like me and enjoy my presence.
My life motto is (and I love telling it to my students) "If you're comfortable, you're not learning!" I also like to phrase it as "If you're uncomfortable, you're learning and living!"
