The "8 in my zoo" are a combination of cats, dogs bunnies and children. (OK, just one child. ) I love my animals, and I'm trying hard with my teenage daughter. (Well, I am!) I love Jesus and my church, I sing in the choir and serve as a deacon. I would like to get back to those things that used to bring me joy; spending (active) time outside in nature, going to cultural events and traveling. I work with severely disabled high school students currently. In the past I have worked with learning disabled students also. (In the distant past, I delivered a lot of pizza!)One of my pet peeves is poor English, so guys, proofread your profile!
