Background Information

all around New York

teach
Honors, Awards, and Achievements:

Community Service and Other Activities:
Community service...is...good. Sorry, but that colon does very little to help my understanding of what you want. I donate countless hours to not-for-profit children's theater. I also write long, poetic e-mails to friends with low self-esteem. I leave random, anonymous presents for my students to find. And I am a pro bono writing tutor, because I believe everyone should have access to the power that words allow. How's that?
