About Me

CURRENT MISSION

No mission!

ABOUT ME

I am simple and sincere. I love meeting new people and different cultures.
I am cheerful, but also a little reserved and shy.
I'm a teacher (italian, history, geography; students aged between 11 to 14). I re-discover every day the beauty of being with young people and help them to be interested in other cultures and friendly with others.

PHILOSOPHY

* When I do good, I feel good; when I do bad, I feel bad. That's my religion.

* Never go to bed angry. Stay up and fight. :-)

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm teacher of Italian as foreign language: I could teach you a little bit of Italian, during your stay.
I'd love to share with you the musics and the movies I like.

I'd like to learn to play chess and speak other languages.

I am an enthusiastic COOKSURFER, so I would love to learn new recipes from other countries; in exchange, of course, I could teach you some typical Italian recipe.
