the teacher.


 

I started teaching in 1998, right after I moved back from living in Maine for two years.  I had just started to look for accounting work again when a good friend asked if I wanted to teach children. There was a shortage of teachers in California and anyone with a college degree was a potential candidate.

I went for an interview, thinking that I could at least be a substitute teacher working part-time while seeking a new accounting position.  Walked in with my resume, sat down for an interview, and was offered a full-time teaching position starting right away.

The rest is history.

The “LITE” Blogger.


I love to read and write.  I’ve kept a personal journal growing up.  When I became interested in computers, I transitioned to blogging.

I consider myself a “lite” blogger. But my goal is to become a better blogger.

The Crocheter.


 

In 2005, I was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. While undergoing chemo, I began to teach myself how to loom.  It was a way to keep myself busy and active.  Not long after, I taught myself how to knit and crochet.  I became hooked. 

I have a passion for amigurumi, the art of crocheting small stuffed toys.  I love finishing a project and feeling that sense of accomplishment. I rarely keep any projects and find more joy in gifting them to friends and family.
