Swap apartments two summers in a row

I am a full-time high school art teacher in the bay area (California), I am also in the MFA Art Practice program at the School of Visual Arts New York. I spend my summers in New York and this is my final summer session before graduating. Finding residence for summer is incredibly difficult but sabbatical homes has made it possible for me to swap apartments two summers in a row. I am very fortunate that this site exists, it is incredibly beneficial! Thank you!
