Everyone has many facets to their personality and I am no different.  If I had to pick three words to describe my personality I would say:

  • Caring.  I put a lot of effort into making my children know that I care for them.  I think my students know that too (on a different level, of course).
  • Sloppy.  This is sort of a negative way to put it, but I am not always as conscientious as I should be about getting things done.  This is especially true of things that I do not think are important.  I am always very bad about doing my classroom inventory at the end of each school year, for example.
  • Content.  I am very happy with my life just as it is.

Passionate: I am highly passionate about many things in life (children, teaching, family, photography, nature). I pour my heart and soul into these things and get extremely emotional regarding these topics.

Compassionate: I am very sympathetic to other people's struggles. Maybe because I have a history of serious clinical depression, I am always willing to 'walk in someone else's shoes' just for a moment.

Nurturing: When working with children, I am warm and nurturing, but still stern.

(Those are the answers I use when asked this question in interviews as well)
