Travel Enthusiast; gypsy at heart. I spent my twenties trying to figure out where I belong in this world. My daughter unexpectly but amazingly came into my world when I was 25. This moment was one of those ok, its adult time now so I began to decide on a good, solid career for a single mom. One career path immediately stood out, and not just because I come from a family of teachers. As a teacher I could choose what I taught and it was a dream single mom career where we would always have the same hours.... I taught for 5 years, both public & charter schools, before deciding to pull my child out of our school systems and homeschool her myself. I am an avid traveler and I taught all subjects of social studies within my five years. My very politically active grandfather greatly impacted my love for politics and am proud to say he was a WWII veteran and my hero. I've also worked as a freelance curriculum developer and was published in 3 textbooks. I currently work as an artist's assistant and am a local coordinator for a foreign exchange organization. I love to write, spend time with my family, and travel! Sitting here @ 34, I am once again looking for my place in this world.
