I'm a retired teacher who has taught for forty- six years. The time to quit is now but I have far too much energy to sit around. I no longer want to be tied down to a home and all of the possessions one accumulates throughout a life time. My children have become the owners of what they've treasured through the years and I have become unencumbered. Sitting for another's home, pets and garden for a limited time period surely is the way to satisfy my need for exploration in new communities, enjoy different climates and experience diverse cultures.
I have owned five homes, rental property and rehabbed dwellings, constructed gardens, and tended to various animals while working full time as a teacher. I have taught every level from Kindergarten to Post-graduate courses. I was once retired from teaching but hated not working so I returned to education as an Instructional Coordinator. It is now time to move on.
My two children are the parents of loving children who are bright, talented, musical and well-mannered. That's the grandmother in me speaking.
I am well-traveled, having visited four of the seven continents. Precious treasures are fully appreciated and understood. I know what's valuable and how to care for them.
I have had the pleasure of housesitting in seven states, including Hawaii and in Costa Rica on five separate occasions.
There is no place in this world I would consider unacceptable as a house-sitting assignment.
As a Christian who follows her faith, you can be assured that I will perform your sit with honesty.
