1. How did you get into English Language Teaching?
A chance meeting and a twist of fate resulted in getting my
first job as a teacher in a small village in the Himalayas of
Nepal. It was an incredible, almost magical experience.
2. What different places, countries, have you taught in before?
I spent four and a half years teaching and training teachers in Japan and four years in Australia and New Zealand while I finished my Master of Education.
3. What do you particularly enjoy about teaching?
I love the diversity of cultures and personalities I encounter in the classroom. I enjoy helping students to reach their personal and academic goals.
4. What's the best thing about Wellington?
I love the wind (kidding!) Wellington is a beautiful, funky, artsy, compact city full of intelligent, creative, humane people. And then there are also politicians here....;)
5. If you could invite 3 people from history for dinner, who would you invite, and what would you cook?
Hmm a tough question. My first thought was to invite three very evil people because my cooking could have some positive results! However, I think if I could explore the minds of three of the most fascinating people in history while eating some of New Zealand's best seafood and white wine I would choose.
