Our furbaby

As mentioned, I am married. Ryan and I met in Virginia where I was working as an exchange teacher. He was working in the same school - just across the hall.

We had two weddings - a church wedding in Adelaide in April 2004 and a ceremony in York River Park in Virginia in the following July.

We published a web page of photos for each:

Adelaide Wedding

American Wedding

I am a teacher at a fabulous school in the city called USC. It's a school for students who are mature and motivated and I love teaching there. I teach English, ESL and Australian Studies.
