Solo Mama Seeking Live In Trade for Work (nanny, elder care, housekeep

dogs are OK - wooof

Aloha Friends!

I am Angela, a licensed elementary teacher from Colorado and mother to the most amazing little six year old redhead. I have spent much of my time the last two years traveling the world teaching. I backed out a placement at an international IB kindergarten in Beijing at the last minute over some issues many Americans seem to be having in China. However, the quick shift left me a bit rocky in our lives as I suddenly had no income or anywhere to stay in Colorado. We landed temporarily in Bellingham WA to stay with a friend but that time is ending due to a variety of circumstances. 

We are a quiet, friendly, kind, community oriented pair and my job skills offer any household a wonderful variety of ways I might be able to offer a live in trade. I have a fantastic resume and amazing references.

I have done live in work for almost a decade altogether in my life including time spent doing one on one caregiving for MS patients, a long stretch in a group home with foster care girls, a period at a hospice facility, and others, including working for trade on organic farms and doing housekeeping and lawn maintenance, housesitting and pet care (including goats and chickens). I am a strong, intelligent, adaptable, useful and helpful friendly soul to have around a home. 

We have a great love of life, clear communication, respectful co-habitation and healthy boundaries. We are playful, creative, kind and musical. We’d love to hear if your family has a need for some help that we could offer. 

I have also lived in a small natural community recently setting up a homeschool co-op so my visionary life goals include being in community in natural settings and being as close with nature as possible and educating and playing with kiddos. 

We’re in Bellingham WA now but could come as far as Northern California - so I felt like putting this post on as many craigslist local sections as I could under housing wanted. 

More accurately, I could say: community wanted. Could I harvest something that magical from Craigslist these days?

Be in touch my friends!!!

***We do not work well living in a household with unclear communications, or people who drink excessive alcohol, as it adds to tension and confusion. We are a mother a child and can’t live in near-silence either so your household must be okay with laughter and joy and play. 

***please re-read if necessity dictates and be sure you understand there is nothing creepy intimated or offered in this ad. I am not a woman looking for some man to have a relationship with AT ALL. Be. Very. Clear. 

Thank you!!
