I work at a primary School with kids from 5-12 years old. I enjoy playing lots of sport and being active. I love travelling and exploring new places and cultures and love meeting new people.
I'm easy going and friendly and always up for a chat over a beer. I am quite open minded and prepared to try pretty much anything at least once. I'm a non-smoker.
Within my exercise science degree I have also majored in 20th century European history. So I am loving travelling through Central/Eastern Europe and seeing the major squares and buildings where history was created through wars, uprisings and significant political figures. I look forward to becoming a history teacher too as well as a sport teacher.
