Our Story

We met at a salsa dance event! :) We saw each other and started walking towards each other to dance..While dancing James started to talk Spanish to impress Selin. Unfortunately Selin didn't understand a word since she was not Latino. :) But we connected so well since then :)
We are both highly educated professors and we are both in education field. Selin is a university professor at the highest level (Full Professor) and James is teaching English as a second language and he is the director of the ESL program.
We both value education and prioritize education at the highest standards. We also love being active and enjoying life together as a family.

adoptive family photo - Selin I am a professor at a liberal arts college in Austin, Texas. I love dancing, going to the gym, and spending time with friends or my hubby. Family is very important to me. Even though my family lives on the opposite side of the world in Turkey, we talk all the time and they are a central part of my life. I hope to create my own family in the US.
