Recent Appalachian Grad, looking for a short term room in Durham, NC. I am moving to Durham to student teach at the Durham School of the Arts and have never spent much time in the area before. I will be getting my liscenure to be a K-12 visual art teacher and I am a painter myself. Apart from painting and working with children, my greatest passion is body work and I am training to become a classical pilates instructor. I waitress part-time at your favorite pizza restaurant and speak French, assez fluently. My favorite things include hot coffee, good wine, books and books on tape, freshly stretched canvas and crusty old oil paint.
