First and foremost I consider myself a very frank and down-to-earth person. I genuinely love kids, especially teenagers, not a lot of people can deal with, let alone teach adolescents, but God has truly gifted me with the patience to do so. I love to travel, when the opportunity presents itself. Being a single-parent of one child (well, corrections; teenager, so you know my life stay pretty busy. Retired military (23 years) , enabled me to become the objective, diverse, and open-minded person that I am today. I feel that all everyone (including me) is just looking for is someone to love and accept them for who they really are, that's all.
