About Me

Hello! My name is Jan and I'm so happy and grateful to have had many wonderful experiences in the CS community.

Currently, I'm halfway done getting my teaching credential and am looking forward to having my own classroom in a primary school. I've found my passion for teaching a few years ago after working and volunteering in an after school program- children are wonderful and amazing!

During my free time, I enjoy exploring nature, cooking, baking, making jewelry, embroidery, listening to live music, et cetera.

*Got to plan and go on a trip with my cousin in France- we had a great time and was able to couchsurf! For more references, our joint CS profile is at couchsurfing.com/users/2005299123 and I promise we wrote references back but looks like it was done incorrectly so it doesn't show on our page (though it's on theirs..), oops~
