About MaryannM
Joined January 2015
My name is Maryann Morabito. I grew up in Port Chester, NY but once I came to Texas, that was it. Texas won my heart (and it was nice and warm besides).

I have spent most of my working life as an elementary school teacher. I taught middle school math and finally, when I got to San Antonio, the love of my life Technology. I learned everything I could from hardware, to software, to programming - it was great! The students actually learned industry standard software and had a good time doing it, because my sidekick and I found so many creative ways to teach it.

By the end of my 10th year, I began to get sick. It was something that I had had for a long time. We just didn't know when it was going to give in. October 2006 came, but at that point, I had to leave.

What is "it?" Well, I was blessed with a number of things: Generalized Anxiety Disorder, severe; Severe panic attacks; Agoraphobia; PTSD; and a host of other delightful traits. I try to joke about it, but it makes life very difficult. As strange as it may sound, I am glad that it happened; it heightened my sensitivity toward those who suffer, and woke me up to the world of nature and photography.

I tried starting a business from home, since working a regular job, was no longer an option. However, I was not a salesperson, and no matter how hard I tried to be one, the business just could not succeed.

Last year I spent most of my time at Government State Canyon Natural Area as a Volunteer. The Canyon was the greatest thing that ever happened to me; and I want to get back there. The desire to be at the Canyon is what brought me here. Nature is one of the most healing things in the world and I am determined, no matter what it takes, to get back to what I call "home." Working as such, even at the Canyon, is not an option but, that doesn't matter. I can volunteer there as long as I want; and there is never a lack of things to do. So I really have it made, that is, as long as I can find my way back to the Canyon.

That is the problem. Right here I an volunteering at a state natural area holding a ball python.

Ok if I could get into a house within waking distance of the Canyon and pay my bills plus the back debt I would be happy.

If I could get a truck and a service dog I and stil "live" at the Canyon I would be estatic.

Right now I am stuck in four walls and that is not where I belong. I love nature. I am not a desk job person,

But question - Open Education - that could mean a lot of things right? Or is it the training that we are speaking about?

Most here are Maryann :)
The community is very helpful.
I use to give guided tours throughout Costa Rica. Many tourist come to see the incredible fauna and flora of one of Gods most beautiful country in the world.
One of our most popular butterflies was and is the Blue Morpho. When it's wings are closed it is brownish but when she flutters it is a metallic blue so stunning people become hypnotized. To see a few flying all together is stunningly beautiful.
You will make it back to Government State Canyon Natural Area :)
I see you are holding a snake. Snakes,I don't like. Call it a primordial fear :)

Thanks, I didn't know if I really liked snakes but there I don't seem to be afraid of much. The ball python was so loving. The guy who owned all of the snakes, said he could put a ball python on his stomach, watch a whole football game, and the snake would be as content as could be.
