When I am not teaching secondary English, something about which I am very passionate, I perform Middle Eastern Dance in its various forms througout the metroplex on a somewhat regular basis. I am very interested in raising awareness regarding social injustices the plague our community, country, and world; I believe this awareness is paramount to furthering freedom across the globe. In addition, I am equally invested in the following issues: environmental causes, pro-choice, women's issues, religious and social acceptance, civil liberties, educating anyone who wants to learn and cannot because of environmental or governmental limitations, endangered species, medical aid for the impoverished, and homelessness. I have also started a Women's Humanities Group in my area to raise cultural awareness and bring together women who have similar interests but might not otherwise meet.
