After 18 years in North and Northeast Portland, I recently moved to Southwest Portland, close to Sylvania, the campus where you’ll usually find me. I like to explore my neighborhood’s urban hikes and to make the occasional Mt. St. Helens summit. My favorite Dewey Decimal range is 914-919. I’ve lived nearly one year, in pieces, of the past four in Mexico. In 2013, my partner and I euro railed and backpacked in 14 countries. The important takeaway from those three months: I’m too old for that. This summer I’ll be a student again. I am going back to school for a CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). It’s important that teachers never stop learning.
