I am an elementary school teacher and like most jobs, it has its ups and downs...but mostly ups! I am engaged to a great guy and am very happy. We are getting married in October 2012. I had a house built in 2009 and really enjoy being a homeowner (even all the stres) and I am enjoying decorating it and making it my home. I have lived on Long Island my whole life. I love all the people that I have met on LJ and am always looking for new 'friends'.
