About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Make kids learn to read, write, listen, and speak in English as much as possible.

ABOUT ME

Well, I just finished grad school and am now a history teacher in a middle school. I live in Brooklyn now and will move to Washington Heights in October.

PHILOSOPHY

"Life consists of two contradictory elements. The first are words that change the world. The second is a world that has nothing to do with words."

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have gone to a few Philly couchsurfing events. That's a great group. I have not done anything couchsurfing related in New York. I've barely used this website. I think I will start using it more often now, maybe.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

So far:
I've couchsurfed at Ben Hall's in Washington DC and Lawrence Taylor's in Lower East Side Manhattan.
I've hosted Jessie Stocks from Phoenix, AZ.
These were while I was still living in Philadelphia.
I've had a great experience with this so far.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I have lots of crazy Peace Corps stories.

In 2008, I was in a US government evacuation of a country in turmoil. This was the end of my Peace Corps experience. I got out 7 months short of the full tenure but is still considered a full RPCV.

In 2005, a couple of my roommates and I went to an Arizona State football game with our Halloween costumes on when it was September. We got on the big screen 4 times.

Teach, Learn, Share

I guess I know a lot about education, history, political science, philosophy, sports, and psychology.

Me gustaria hablar espanol mas. Enseno dominicanitos. Lo siento por no acentos.
