I went to school atMarymount Universityjust outside of Washington D.C. to play college lacrosse and taught two years at an urban high school in our nation’s capitol. Since landing in San Diego two weeks ago, I am trying to learn to surf(you can see me getting barreled at the local beaches). I enjoy learning, trying new activities, and find Ellen DeGeneres hilarious.I can never get enough of travelingxe2x80xa6I love to visit other countries, learn about their cultures and share time with people from all different backgrounds.People describe me as enthusiastic and high energy, but that is usually after my first coffee. I can’t wait to meet my new students and already know we are going to have a wonderful year!
