I like to be outside gardening and riding my bike to get around. I like swimming holes and wilderness. I'm an unconventional elementary teacher, creating trusting relationships with kids in an open education setting for students 5-12. My partner and I are all about fixing up old stuff. I love making dinners and being creative with my friends. I play trombone in a renegade marching band called Minor Mishap. I'm laid back and when I travel I enjoy a relaxed pace. I prefer spending quality time Being somewhere rather than rushing to and fro. Building community and doing meaningful work are important to me.
