In A Nutshell
Originally from Kansas City, my family moved to Tucson when I was 9 years old. I am the eldest sister of 3 siblings. I was initially shy in school but eventually found my calling in the high school theater department. I then went to Drake University. I returned to Tucson and began my career as an elementary school teacher. I have taught primary education for over 30 years, mainly working with underserved Hispanic children.
I retired from teaching in 2010 and am currently teaching yoga at a few studios in the Tucson area. I am certified in children's yoga and teach at a few elementary schools. I love it!
I live with my sweet dog Bogey and am currently training him to become a therapy dog for at-risk children.
I enjoy maintaining a healthy lifestyle, being with my son and daughter in-law when they're in town, attending fine-arts programs, and keeping up with current events. Most mornings you can find me walking in Sabino Canyon.
I also have a passion for literature and I enjoy interacting with authors who present at the annual festival of books every Spring.
The One I Am Looking For
I value thoughtfulness, affection, intelligence, kindness, and a sense of humor. I prioritize my health - exercise, healthy-eating, and stress management (e.g. yoga, meditation). I would appreciate meeting someone who keeps a healthy lifestyle as well.
I also value adventure in a partner. For example, I enjoy traveling, watching movies, listening to lectures, and attending the symphony.
