Tenant Searching for a Place in State College, Pennsylvania, United States

Looking for an Entire Home | Open to House Sitting

Last Updated 27 days ago


I am a single parent whose daughter just graduated from college and will attend graduate school in NYC this Fall. I have an administrative day job at Penn State and teach Art History in the evenings, also at Penn State. I am in the process of selling my house in State College and would like to sublet a home for around six months, starting roughly in October, 2021 (but it could be sooner) until April 2022 (but that can also be flexible), to allow myself the time to fully and carefully explore other employment opportunities outside of PA before committing to staying in this area. I was full-time faculty in art history and director of the art museum at Juniata College in Huntingdon for 16 years and left because of a long-term caregiving obligation to my husband, who ultimately passed away, seven years ago. I accepted a less demanding position at that time with Penn State so that I would have more time for caregiving and to focus on my daughter after we became a single parent family. Now I would like to explore other opportunities and crave returning to the museum profession and/or full-time teaching. I would like to sublet a home, or condominium, which would allow me the great benefit of having that time to explore possibilities. I'm very neat, and would care well for your home. I do have one 13-year-old small (22 pounds) dog, Basil, and one 10-year-old cat, Zipper. Both are affectionate and well-behaved.
