  • My status


  • Description

    I am a teacher who has experience teaching people of various ages and abilities. I taught math in West Africa, English language in Mexico and Texas, literacy skills to struggling readers, elementary students with various learning needs and styles in NYC, cooking in upstate New York. I'm taking a break from full time work and traveling and learning. I enjoy meeting people old and young. I eat well, cook well, practice yoga and jump rope, compost and recycle, ride an old bike for transportation, go to the beach even in Brooklyn, walk in the woods. I homesteaded the building I live in. I'm interested in experiences that involve being outdoors - gardening, farming, light construction projects but also food prep, cooking, cleaning and organizing.
