  • Description

    We are two local part-time teachers—middle aged folks—who live in Northern California, USA—where the redwoods meet the sea. Pete has just retired from teaching music for 30 years at an elementary school. Cyndy teaches English part-time at a university and has just started a small independent press that pairs authors and illustrators from locations where they may not have other chances to be heard or seen. She also writes fiction and is an artist. We both have our 120 hour TEFL certification and Cyndy has experience teaching ESL in Nepal and America.

    We like to spend time outdoors—walking, cycling, hiking, kayaking, etc. —just as much as we love cozying up to a good book, creating artwork, singing around the fire, or doing yoga. We love to spend time with others and to be of service in the world. Cyndy is as crazy about spending time with animals as Pete is about spending time working with kids.

    Last summer, we spent three months doing work exchanges in Orkney, Ireland, Norway, and the Faroe Islands. We managed a B&B, walked dogs, restored buildings, cooked food, painted, and built an underwater version of Atlantis (in a fish tank). We had an incredible experience at each place and still keep in touch with our we are heading to Ecuador for two months (one month on the mainland and one month in the Galapagos). Afterwards Cyndy is heading on-solo- to Orkney.

    We'd love to come be part of your projects.....

  • Autres infos...

    We are both honest, responsible, respectful folks, who are hard workers and who are able to communicate well and follow directions. We're also highly creative and love it most when we are given a task to do that allows some freedom in the approach. We don’t smoke or do drugs, but we do occasionally drink wine/beer. We have a slew of professional and personal references we’ve accrued over the years, including other workaway and helpx hosts available for you upon request.
