  • Description

    I am currently living as an Au Pair in the suburbs of Paris, caring for the four children of a lovely family and learning French. I have worked as a teacher for the last 10 years, teaching English, History, and Theatre to students from 8 to 16 years old. I am taking this year off to improve my French, learn to paint, practice my Banjo, and experience living abroad.

    Although I have traveled all over Europe, I have lived in Miami, FL all my life and am now, for the first time, leaving home for more than five weeks of tourist site-seeing, to truly experience another culture. VIVE LA FRANCE!

    I love being an au pair, but I would also love to see other parts of France and especially experience the lavender fields, the farms (where I could learn about sustainable living and how to eco build and restore).

  • Skills and knowledge I'd like to share or learn

    I'm interested in:  

    Gardening
    DIY and building projects
    Life at a Farmstay
    Eco Projects
    Charity Work
  • More details about your skills

    I am a practitioner of Aromatherapy and have knowledge of essential oils and their medicinal properties. I have had some experience with permaculture and with construction, but too basic to be a skill; I have A LOT to learn about sustainable living and eco construction!
