The Latin American historian @ Augusta State University
So what would you like to know?
I have cared for children and taught at all levels: infant/toddler, pre-K, high school, ESL, college, and university. I am the wife of a Sudani former refugee turned U.S. citizen, mother of two, and have lived in MA, CT, RI, PA, LA, UT, TX, IL, and now GA. I have also traveled to Iceland, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, and Costa Rica. In high school I was an exchange student to France. In college, I took six week classes two different summers and homestayed in Mexico and Guatemala. I also lived at various times in Guatemala in the capital, Antigua, and Xela.
Love my Jeep Commander (Hemi/4 wheel drive/off road tires) and drive like I am still a city-chick, so watch out! I am usually late, driving too fast, and on the phone and dealing with kids in the back seat and drinking coffee. If I cut you off, it's nothing personal ; )
Oh, yeah, love Tool and most 80s and 90s alternative music, listen to 95.5 F.M., last concert I remember seeing was Henry Rollins opening for Jane's Addiction, last major venue was Lollapalooza in 1992 when I saw the Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam, and some weird Jim Rose Circus Sideshow, followed a ska band in the NW (Insatiable) for a couple years, lived a bohemian lifestyle for almost a decade in New Orleans, before converting to Islam at age 28. Figured I should clarify that the scarf is not for any sort of hair-loss. Remember, don't judge people simply based on appearances.
I may seem strict or even mean, but I'm really just a typically cynical, sarcastic Bostonian with a good sense of humor, down-to-earth personalilty, but with high expectations for myself and those around me. I just hope to have you love History and Latin America as much as I do!
