Hi. My name is Heidi. I am a substitute teacher and soccer coach in Arizona, and a non-smoker. I have a 7-year-old child, who is quiet and shy and very well behaved. My sister, a police officer, sometimes comes along. We are both prior military (she is still in, but now in the Guard) and have traveled all over. We are courteous and organized travelers. We are used to adapting to environments, and sharing spaces with either sociable people or sharing spaces while still keeping to yourself.
To me life is about experiences and that is what I try to give my son. Not just touristy things but the culture and lifestyles that enrich it. I think an opportunity of sharing your place provides a great experience, unto itself.
Prior to having my child, I also, would rent out a room here. I rented to international students. So I also have experience as a host and thus how to be a good guest.
