I am getting married October 2017! In my 7 years with Sparkpeople there's never been a stronger incentive than my true vintage 1950's satin wedding gown.

Hi I am Samantha, I was born three months premature on a Native American reservation in Montana, I am half German & half Native American. I've been living near Dusseldorf Germany for three years.

I am 33 years old and work as a social sciences teacher at a bilingual high school. This job literally has me on my feet all day and is full of all the challenges one can imagine working with children/families in an extremely bureaucratic/work obsessed society :) My work keeps me alert and Sparkpeople keeps me accountable!


Member Since: 8/10/2010

Fitness Minutes: 116,408

My Goals:
Try to get my troublesome Native American belly flat without surgery (though I am considering it.) I hope controlling my insulin via a wheat free diet will help.

I eat clean, high protein and high fruit/vegetable diet. I never started with alcohol on account of my cultural background:(


My Program:

I have a treadmill, parked conveniently in front of the tv :)

I walk constantly, that's the good thing about living and working in Western Europe. We rely a lot less on cars and are always running for trains, buses and trams.. As teacher I am constantly on my feet and so busy sometimes I forget to eat (which is not good, I know)





Personal Information:
I am fanatical about travel! :P I grew up working class and always wanted to travel so I work hard and save to be able to backpack in different countries. So far I have been to:

Argentina
Armenia
Australia
Austria
Belgium
Canada
Czech Republic
Colombia
Denmark
Ecuador
England
Fiji
France
Germany
Holland
Hungary
India
Ireland
Japan
Morocco
Panama
Poland
Portugal
Russia
Slovakia
Switzerland
Spain
Sweden
Turkey
Ukraine
United States
Uruguay


Other Information:
I just finished my MA of Secondary Special Education in May 2011 which allowed me to move to Australia for two years. One day when all my student loan debt is paid off (har har!) I'd like to get another MA in Bilingual Education focusing on Spanish & German.

    Thanks for the comment on my blog!

    I emailed the principal and declined the teaching position. Yes, it is in my field, but at this point in my life (I'll be 24 on Sunday), I love the flexibility in my schedule that working at VS gives me.

    I have more room for advancement there than I would teaching; I'm full-time there now, and I achieved that in less than 6 months with the company. There are brand/category managers, assistant store managers, store managers, corporate jobs, etc that are always possibilities if I stick with it.

    My former and current store manager are both in their 40's and still love what they do there :)

    I read your most recent blog, and I can't even imagine the stress you're under right now!! I hope it all turns out well for you, and I pray that it all gets sorted soon!
