I grew up in a small town and after finishing college became a teacher in New York City's public schools. I started as a 6th grade math teacher, but now (7 years later) I'm teaching 4th grade, all subjects. I'm 29 and have been living with roommates since college - all of which have been positive experiences. I'm clean, quiet and respectful of my surroundings and the needs of my roommates. My friends tell me I'm funny, optimistic and a good listener. This is my first time trying AIRBNB - and I'm excited by the unique way in which it allows for experiencing travel.
