Hi, I am a Montessori teacher in the public school system here. I teach children ages 3 to 6. My daughter is a second grader at another public Montessori school. She is a tomboy (hates princesses and is a civil war history buff). We love pets. We have a fish, two pet rats, and a cat. We love dogs but can't have one at the moment so we love staying with people who have them. I was born in Vallejo, CA but only lived in CA for a short time. I've lived in Florida, Texas, Massachusetts, Missouri, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and India. I love to travel and I visit NYC regularly. I am hoping to plan a trip overseas with my daughter some time soon and this curiosity is what lead me to airbnb.
