I've spent the past 20 years living in California, teaching English, French, and Italian, as well as taking care of dogs. I am an animal lover, and enjoy walking, observing nature, hanging out in cafes people watching, and warm sunny weather. (Though I am a Michigan native, I don't like the cold!) I love meeting new people and speaking foreign languages. In Santa Cruz, where I was living most recently, I started an Italian conversation group, and took part in a French one. I have EU/US citizenship and am looking for work teaching English, which I've been doing since the early 1980s. My first teaching job was in Milan, and I also taught in Dijon and Dusseldorf. I have a Pomeranian named Zsa Zsa, whom I miss very much! In the long-term, I'd like to find dog-friendly accommodations in this area and bring her over. First I need to line up work, which I know will be a challenge, but I'm up to it!
