I am Lisa, a single parent of two children, Beren who is 10 and Amelia who is 7. I teach middle school (grades 6 & 7, children ages 12-14) at a nearby private academy, and Beren and Millie attend the nearby public elementary school, going into grades 2 and 5 this fall. I am also a professional musician, a singer and fiddler in an Irish duo. We perform regularly at local pubs, restaurants, coffee houses, music festivals, and even at Busch Gardens. Any location where there is a local music scene, especially with traditional, acoustic music, will be of great interest to me.
We have traveled up and down the Eastern seaboard, and a great deal up and down the West Coast of the US, but are ready to have some overseas time together! Our travel dates are dictated by the school year, and we are primarily looking for simulaneous exchange over Easter and Summer vacations. We also have 4 cats who are very friendly, and can be cared for by you or we can arrange for neighbors to attend to them. They are indoor/outdoor pets, very playful and independent, and if your preference is that they spend more time out than in, you could feel free to put them outside other than when they need to eat once a day. The neighborhood is full of children of all ages, a very welcoming place for a family.
