I am a member of a big family in many ways. I have 2 partners (Calyx Meredith and John). Combined, we are 3 adults, 5 kids and 2 dogs strong.
I was adopted. I grew up with my adopted family in Florida. When I was about 21, I met my biological family. They are all a regular part of my life.
When I was 9, I was riding my bike – my brand new bike in my brand new jeans (they had lots of pockets and zippers – precursors to cargo pants – well, that’s what I like to tell myself anyway) in Key Largo, Florida at a campground. The roads were made of pieces of coral rock (like gravel only worse). I attempted a turn, fell and broke my femur. As a result of the break, I was in traction for a month (to pull the bones apart so they would set properly) and a body cast for 3 months. I was afraid of my bike for a time.
I got over being afraid of my bike.
I have a BS in Math and Secondary Ed as well as a Master of Divinity.
I teach middle school math (7th grade – mostly PreAlgebra and some Algebra). I started a blog with my students this year.
I was born in Miami. I don’t like the cold and I love the ocean.
