I am a teacher, athlete, crafter, and urbanist. I like eating good food, listening to good music, and enjoying the great outdoors. I love swimming and the sun. I spend my days trying to inspire teenagers to see the world differently, and to understand that they can make a change in the world that they see. In my summers off, I compete in triathlons, sew pretty things, and travel. In a former life I was a New Yorker, doing fun New York things.
