Seeking a tutor/educator who might be willing to move to Marfa, TX for 3-6 mos. this spring: Normally our children (ages 6 and 9) go to the Brooklyn Waldorf School in NY, which we love. This year, we are living in the beautiful high-plains desert town of Marfa, TX. We love being in this tiny cultural mecca in the vast landscape, but have been disappointed by the educational experience.
Home for sale- 99 Webster Rd. Freeport. 3 BR 2.5 bath, approx. 2400 sq ft., 2 car oversized garage with storage and third garage door entry on side, on 3.8 acres.

Perennial beds surround the house, apple, pear, and peach trees have been planted, blueberry bushes and garden spots are in place.
