I am presently and elementary teacher, but also teach educational courses online to adults overseas. I have worked in the field in nature, am a science teacher by trade, but love all things that are fun and wonderful. I have studied the arts, dance, music, write stories, and travelled the world. I also love languages, and work in the garden, and dabble in technology.
