Inspired by everyone (but started, I think, by @roaringsoftly? Correct me if I'm wrong.)
  1. Hi all! I'm DG. And I feel most comfortable keeping some facade of privacy, so I don't have pictures of myself or anything. Maybe that will change at some point.
  2. Here's what you'd find out about me by reading my past or future lists:
  3. I'm 36, soon to be 37.
  4. I live in NJ.
    You can read my list about why I love it: WHY I LOVE NEW JERSEY
  5. I'm the mom of two little kids: a daughter (age 5) and a son (age 2).
  6. I used to teach special education but now I stay home and read lists. I mean, raise my kids. I also tutor.
  7. I love reading, especially to and with my kids. I really love children's books. My teaching specialty is working with students who have reading disabilities/dyslexia.
  8. I am a co-author of one (soon to be two) manuals for teachers who work with students with dyslexia.
  9. I am also:
  10. an optimist
  11. an anxious perfectionist, although I'm working on both.
  12. an introvert and a homebody.
  13. really close with my parents, sisters, grandparents, and aunts.
  14. 💜 I love this community. It's the first form of social media I've ever joined, and I'm so pleased I did. 💜
