I've been a soldier, adolescent case worker, a bilingual and special education teacher at the high school level and currently a university instructor working with student-teacher interns. I'm bilingual in Spanish and English and I do so-so with German. I lived in several countries in Europe thanks to university and the military. I am of mixed race and my family is like the United Nations or the Rainbow Coalition. I have six kids, 3 boys (twin boys) and 3 daughters along with 4 granddaughters and 2 grandsons who call me Beba and another on the way! I am an original serious Southern belle country sista girl from Virgina who still has the Southern accent forever. I have a very vivacious personality and keep others in a good mood. I always see the positive side of life, the glass is always half-full rather than half-empty. I love to read (mysteries, histories, sci-fi)while listening to good music. I like to attend cultural events especially museums and exhibits. I also love to travel to new places and meet new people and experience new cultures. I like to say that I have never met a country whose food I didn't like! I guess this sums me up in a quick few words though of course I am so much more than these few words that I have included here.
