I'm a young mathematics educator with interests in teaching, especially teaching math to people who say, "I've always hated math!", kayaking (mostly whitewater, but no class V's for me yet, I still need to learn how to roll!), T.V. (Survivor, The Amazing Race, Lost, Criminal Minds, any old Star Trek Next Generation & Voyager eps, and Deadliest Catch are among my current fav's), adventure recreation stuff (I'm one of those people who used to sit & watch all 300 hours of the Eco-Challenge Race *smile*), and music (unfortunately, the only thing I can play is the CD player but... I love listening to all types of music [except twangy country & blue grass] -- fav artists include Nickleback, Leona Lewis, Terri Allard, Dr. Hook, Etta James, Vonda Shepard, Kathy Mattea, Amy Grant, Aretha Franklin, and FANTASIA (oh yeah, I like American Idol too!), to name but a few. I love lions, partly because I'm a Leo but mostly because I think they're cool. Coffee, chocolate, Diet Coke, and Japanese food (teppan yaki) are my favorites. I love to read, be outdoors (camping, hiking, kayaking, doing ropes courses, whatever), and play with my dog, black miniature schnauzer named Escher Steele *but we call him "Steeler"*.
