About me

Industry Education
Occupation design teacher
Location Monterey Peninsula, California, United States
Introduction I've crammed several lifetimes into the present one. I've been fat, thin, pretty, ugly, arty, jocky, intellectual, I've lived in cities, fancy suburbs, ghettos and on a farm. I've delivered newspapers, attended Swiss boarding school, been a baker, cook, teacher, nanny, designer and so much more. I'm a high school teacher at the moment, so I just try to hold on to my sense of humor and hope for the best. My class website is http://themeanmissbean.com
