"I would rather learn from one bird how to sing than to teach 10,000 stars how not to dance.”

WHO AM I?

I'm a proud graduate of The University of Findlay with bachelor of arts degrees in Adolescent-Young Adult Language Arts Education and English with a teaching emphasis, and I'm currently studying at the same institution for my MAE in Reading. I enjoy playing hopscotch with hobos, eating breakfast at Tiffany's, and listening to Christmas music in June. I would like to eventually teach education, literature, and writing classes at the college level, but that won't be until I spend a good many years teaching high school English (and partaking in various other service-minded careers). Majoring in Education and English, I know that my wallet will always be empty, but regardless, I will always be happy. I plan to live in a box in the woods surrounded by a pack of poodles and a gaggle of geese. There I can spend my days in leisure, with my Audrey Hepburn look-alike wife, writing to the world.

WHAT DO I DO?

I write. I read. I design. I teach. I discover. I learn. I create. I imagine. I dream. I hope. I pray. I love.
