My picture

Hi! Welcome to my home page.

Charlie and I moved back to the states in the Fall of 2002. We are currently living in Baton Rouge, Louisiana where I hope to become a grade school teacher and Charlie is studying for a Ph.D. in Educational Technology.

I'm very sure that I want to be a teacher here. I've been substitute teaching for the last two semesters and am an "A" student in Southeastern's Masters of Arts in Teaching program. While Baton Rouge is not the most exotic place we have ever lived, there are more important things. It's good to be back in Southern America where the people are friendly and the food is good! Even more important, we are now close to family after so many years across the ocean. Then again, I may change my mind when the summer heat is in full force.

Here's some pictures of our yard and dogs:

Before Baton Rouge we spent a year in Copenhagen, Denmark where I was a manager at the Hard Rock Café. Copenhagen was lots of fun and we took the opportunity to visit lots of places. I started to write them up on my http://worldexplorer.net website but still have a lot to catch up on.

We also had a lot of fun in the Virgin Islands where Charlie and I met and married. Here's the whole mushy story of how we met. I'm proud to say that over six years later we are still very much in love and happily married.

In case anybody is using a search engine to find me, my maiden name was Alexandra Lee Torrey.
