I'm a father of 2 boys, a husband to 1 girl, and together we're ploughing forward through uncertain times.
I've recently completed my CA Single Subject Teaching program (5-12 Social Studies) and am newly credentialed. Yes, things are tough everywhere, districts are strapped for funding, teachers are being laid off. I think about these things, but I don't worry. I know there's a place for me...I know I'll find a way to contribute.
I also write the HowToMatter.com
blog and, among other things, help small businesses with their online lives. I make custom WordPress websites, offer WordPress Coaching and a host of other web-related services. If you're in need/want of a very professional, functional website or blog, and don't have a ton of money to throw at it, you should probably call me.
Beyond this, I'm a former runner, an aspiring future runner, I do okay on a surfboard, I really like taking pictures and, for me, there's not much in the world that can't be fixed with a little time spent in nature...preferably the kind of nature with mountains and trees and rivers.
