I am the head of Teachers Without Borders, a non-profit, global teacher professional development organization. I am also an Assistant Professor at Johns Hopkins University's School of Education (teach online courses)
I travel to speak on behalf of teachers and simply don't want to throw money at hotels because I would rather spend it on our programs. Besides, all the AirBnb hosts and rooms have been wonderful.
I am clean, a non-smoker, and often at meetings.
