I am a traveler! I love traveling and grew up traveling around the world as my dad was a diplomat.
We lived in Venezuela, Chile, Argentina, Washington DC, Germany, Bangladesh and Bolivia.
I went to high school and college in Massachusetts, Bolivia, New York and California, which is where I now live.
I graduated from UCSC, with a BA in media-communications and went back several years later for a two year teaching program in bilingual/multicultural studies.
Teaching has been a big part of my life. I have been a teacher for twenty eight years: starting as a bilingual elementary teacher, teaching overseas in Bolivia in an international school, teaching Japanese students English, working in a home study program with kids of all ages, teaching a high school Spanish course, and now working as a middle school science and math teacher.
I am also a writer and photographer, publishing over thirty articles in various travel and educational magazines.
My husband, Craig, is also a teacher and is now teaching music at Freedom School in Watsonville. He has been playing music professionally for thirty years and has a local band called the Rayburn Brothers Band. My daughter, Jessie is a freshman at San Diego State University and my son Rowan is a junior at Aptos High School. We have two cats, Blaze and Nemo. We live in a little cabin by a creek in the redwoods in the Santa Cruz mountains.
Places I would like to travel to are New Zealand, Australia, Africa, Iceland, and Japan.
Life is full of adventures!
