Although I was born and raised in Northern California, I have lived in Alaska, Vermont, Georgia, Utila (Honduras), and Oxford (England). The romantic concept of carpe diem has great appeal for me and therefore, I fancy myself an adventurer. Some of my favorite expeditions have been whitewater rafting Cherry Creek, bungee jumping off the Feather River Bridge, sky"dropping" over Healdsburg, scuba diving the Blue Hole. Teaching, for me, exemplies adventure, second only to my greatest adventure--raising my two children.
