HobbiesI am an avid enjoyer of the arts! One of my favorite things about being in Cleveland is the Cleveland Museum of Art. I go there as often as I can, and I find any chance I can to take students there! I also enjoy Argentine tango, photography, and hiking. And, while I am not a sports expert, members of my family are, and I support them and others involved in team activities as best as I can.
