Hi there! My name is Aaron Cantu, I'm a free spirited 27 year old currently teaching middle school students in south Texas. I was born and raised in Raymondville, Tx but also spent much time with my grandparents, often taking trips to see family in Mexico. Thankfully these trips and time with my grandparents have helped me with my Spanish as well as given me an appreciation for the wonderful differences in culture.
I enjoy taking summer trips to pacify my travel bug and gain some perspective on life. I have traveled many times before and have already visited various locations in Central and South America, and much of Southeast Asia. Although I teach full time, I use my summers to experience as much as possible... This is where you come in. I am wanting to give all that I can give in exchange for the warmth of being embraced by another culture. I enjoy meeting and conversing with new people and seeing what we can learn from each other. I have been fortunate to do much in my life and have picked up a skill set along the way that I believe to be beneficial to your success. Please be part of my journey and allow me the privilege of helping you with any and all of your needs.

It may help you better understand who I am if you knew a little more about me. Here it goes; I love hiking to the tops of mountains, attempting to surf, exploring the outdoors, art & music, cooking, climbing trees, reading books. I will be doodling and drawing constantly, so if you'd like to join, that would be great. If I am fortunate enough to stay with you, I promise an exciting, happy, enthusiastic, and honest worker and friend.
I appreciate the consideration!
