I was inspired by aggiekesler to make a math autobiography. I really liked how she didn’t just use the numbers 1-10, but instead chose ten numbers that were significant to her. I’m totally borrowing this idea today!
1- The only pet I’ve ever had as an adult is one cat named Tormenta (the Spanish word for storm because she liked to growl and run around a room). I had to give her to one of my second graders at the end of the school year in China. I hope to be getting a Golden Retriever when I get to Bahrain!
2- I have two younger brothers, Josh and Geremy. We all have very different personalities, but it is still fun to get together with them every summer.
3- I teach 3rd grade in Valencia, Venezuela.
4- I’ve taught at four schools around the world (one in Mexico, one in China, and two schools in Venezuela).
5- I’ve been teaching and living in Venezuela for five years and it is crazy to think that I will be leaving soon!
14- The number of years that I’ve been dancing salsa (and other Latin dances like Bachata, Cha Cha Cha, cumbia, merengue, and now Kizomba).
16- The number of students that I currently have in my classroom.
32- I’ve visited 32 countries so far (but I will be adding Brazil and Chile to the list within a couple of weeks)
4,030- The number of miles from my hometown of Portland, Oregon to Valencia, Venezuela.
