DyanKJ130\'s Guide Bio

Hey all! My name is Dyan & I am pleased to be a PassPorter Co-Guide for DL: Sharing the Adventure: Disneyland Trip Reports, The Kitchen: Food, Recipes, and Good Health and The Library: Books, TV, Movies, and Music. I am 41 years old and have lived most of my life in Warwick, Rhode Island. (From October 1991 – March 1995, I lived in Dill City, Oklahoma; Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; and Lebanon, Missouri) I living in the “Biggest Little State in the Union,” where it takes a mere 45 minutes to drive through the entire state!

I am a domestic violence survivor and have been blessed with Jeffrey, my husband of 8 years. We have been friends since I was 14 & he was 17. I like to joke that it only took him 17 years to ask me out! He works as a 911 Emergency Dispatcher, EMT and firefighter. We have one son, Kyle, who is 17 years old. He is a junior black belt in Kenpo Oki-Ryu and plays the alto saxophone in his high school band and jazz band.

I am a Special Educator at a local junior high school teaching 8th grade. I ran a Behavior Adjustment Resource Program for nearly 10 years, but switched to 'regular' 8th grade resource last school year. I do miss the craziness of the adjustment program, but have really been enjoying some 'normalcy' - well, as normal as junior high school can get.

I have been a fan of Disney since childhood. I remember my dad bringing home stacks upon stacks of Disneyland magazine (Boy, I wish I had kept some of those). As a family we watched “The Wonderful World of Disney” every Sunday evening & “The Mickey Mouse Club” every weekday. We took our first family trip to Walt Disney World in October 1979, when there were only 3 resorts & the Magic Kingdom. We stayed at the Golf Resort (now Shades of Green). My next trip to WDW wasn’t until Kyle was 6 years old in 1999; we have been back 7 times since then. I made 2 solo trips to Disneyland in 1986 & 1988. I was able to share the magic of Disneyland with Jeffrey & Kyle in February 2008, when my very generous aunt shared some RCI points with us.

Besides Disney, I have been a die-hard Red Sox fan since birth! I am fortunate enough to have a father with season tickets, who enjoys taking me or giving me tickets each season. :grin: My favorite memories with my dad are attending Game 1 of the World Series in 2004 and Opening Day 2005 together. I also have many great memories of attending games with Kyle, who is a die-hard fan, as well. He scores each & every game he goes to. We have shared some fabulous games with our 'Fever Pitch' family. My favorite Red Sox memories with Kyle are Game 2 of the World Series in 2007 and Mother's Day 2009 (We took a 'Walk in the Park' in the morning and attended the game together that evening)

I am also a big fan of pitcher/musician Bronson Arroyo, former Red Sox and his saxophonist, Elan Trotman - a teacher in Boston. I also like to crochet and make video slideshows.

I am proud to be a member of the Passporter community and look forward to helping in any way that I can!
