About Me


learning and teaching


I love language, learning, global families, food, trees, arts and crafts, monuments, children, kittycats, history, outer space, MUSIC, singing, dancing, bears, dry wit, HUGGS, people who get worked up about things, and things being different colors.


Find something that feels right/kind/just and live by it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am here.


We have hosted couchsurfers in the past and had some great experiences. I have met up with people in foreign countries via CS.


Differing points of view. How to save the world. How to survive when the world ends. How to get lazy teenagers to learn a foreign language. How to help good teenagers to overcome social and economic obstacles. I read a lot, I study a lot, I sew things and go for walks. I love all kinds of music, all kinds and I like to dance. Husband is in IT, he likes computers and hiking.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like autobiographies, ethnography, history, the news but not reliably and mostly for planning lessons in French. I am all about all different kinds of music, I like pop but I normally am more into jazz, soul, r-n-b, funk, indie, new wave/eighties, psychadelic and classic rock too. I really love music but hesitate to call myself a "music person" because I often don't remember the names of songs or even musicians! And movies, of course I love lots of them, independent films and mainstream alike, especially sci-fi and apocalyptic movies. Nothing excites me more than the end of the world!

Teach, Learn, Share

Give me some ingredients, however simple, and we'll figure out how to make a good meal. There is nothing more human than sharing a meal together.
Also, I am patient with my friends who are learning English--if you want to work on your English or French I would be happy to help.
