All About Me!

Big image

A little background...

I am 22 years old, born and raised in Portland, Oregon!

I have one brother, one step-sister, one half-sister, and two cousins who have been adopted by my mother. My family tree is crazy!

I am half-Italian, half-Scottish. Yes, my father wears a kilt and plays the bagpipes. And yes, my mom makes homeade spaghetti every single Sunday.

I love my dog Samantha, so so much!

My weekends belongs to Football, all season long.

I know American Sign Language, which I hope to utilize in my teaching career.

I love to camp, hike, adventure, ExplOregon :)

I enjoy running, I competed for many years. Now I find it to be a wonderful stress and anxiety outlet.

Some future plans...

I intend to graduate Spring 2016, with a BA in Liberal Studies, and a double-minor in Elementary Education and Special Education.

I hope to begin a Master's of Teaching Program soon after graduation (location still to be decided!).

I would love to work with students who have special needs.

I hope to go into teaching in lower socio-economic areas, and/or Title I districts.

I would love to one day get married and eventually have 2-3 kids.
