Coming from Chicago, I love the personality that a big city has to offer and have found through my travels that each city has a story to tell and the best way to find at story is to immerse myself in the culture. I love history and art, but I am a foodie at heart. I always look forward to a wonderful culinary experience, from high-end dining to the always delicious street vendors.
I am a special education teacher and absolutely love working with kids. I currently teach junior high and as a result, I love reading young adult fiction. My only issue is that once I start reading, I find myself shutting out the rest of the world just to finish.
When I am not teaching or reading, I try to stay active by running and taking in the outdoors. Living in a big city does not always allow for me to take in nature, therefore when I am not on the beaches or parks of Chicago, I try to find time to go out to the country and hike whenever possible.
No matter the destination, when traveling, I love to try new opportunities and truly learn the culture of where I am in that moment.
