I am a sixth grade reading teacher. I teach at a school of mostly at-risk students. It's hard work, but it's so much more fulfilling when they succeed at something. I love my position now, but I am planning to start graduate school to be a counselor. I am pretty close to my family, and I would never be with someone that they didn't like. My favorite place to go is my parent's ranch, but I only get to go up there every once in a while. I believe that I have high, but reasonable, standards for myself and the people around me. I don't expect perfection, but I expect people to recognize their own potential.
