I was born and raised in Oregon, but have lived in Texas for 17 years and I love being here! I spent seven years teaching middle school special education, and am in my second year as lead special education teacher at one of the feeder elementary schools. I am fortunate to work with an incredible staff and support fantastic students!
I have a 10 year old son named Nolan that I adopted from foster care June 27, 2013. I picked him up when he was 10 weeks old and he never left. He's the greatest joy in my life :)
I have traveled to many different places, including Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Australia, Mexico, and Canada, so these places hold a special place in my heart.
Any postcard you send will be great; to give you some ideas of what I have come to like:
Recipes of a local or native dish
Royal families (if you have one)
Famous artists/children's books/illustrators of your country
(Irina Zeniuk is one I have come to like)
Churches/Religious symbols or buildings
Ad cards, especially if they are written in another language
Handmade cards if you are an artist or photographer
Tourist cards (US Senders: I would love to receive city view cards if you have them!)
Unique holiday cards as the holiday arrives
Christmas cards in Nov/Dec/Jan
*Please save dog/cat/horse and Disney cards for someone who will truly appreciate them, thank you!
Tell me about yourself, your family, your job, etc; also tell me one thing that's really unique about you!
I love to direct swap if you are interested in both Texas and Oregon cards!
