I have a bubbly and charasmatic personality. I am not sure how or when I developed this talent. It is simply who I am. I enjoy getting together with family and friends. Some activities I enjoy are: reading, music, movies, theater, cooking, and good conversations. I am an advid reader and I can honestly say that I had enjoyed everything that I read. You could usually extract some pearl of wisdom from just about any book, even a phone book. I have some favorite authors: Nicholas Sparks, James Patterson, & Mike Lupica. As a teacher, I tend to read a great deal of books that I can recommend to my students. I have to tell you upfront I am a bit of a sports nut. I am a Yankees, Norte Dame, Celtic, and Eagle fan. I try to follow the games and keep up on player information, but can't quote stats.
