About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Teaching English to the world

ABOUT ME

I'm American, age 27, and recently returned from teaching English in Spain.

I enjoy teaching and learning and this has taken me to many interesting places around the globe. The last two years I’ve been teaching abroad and will go to Germany next. I’m learning German and working back home now and will return to Europe next spring.

PHILOSOPHY

Low expectations make for good experiences. You can get used to anything - its about the place not the luxuries. Make an effort, not an excuse. If you enjoy what you do, you never work a day in your life. Be happy with what you have and you'll never want for anything. Waste not, want not, etc, etc...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Backpacking/camping around New Zealand on a motorcycle.

Teach, Learn, Share

Avoid general concepts and look for the reality in everything. Be calm and allow your brain to work through information. Einstein once said "It's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay with problems longer."

What I Can Share with Hosts

Good conversation is a plus. If time allows, some kind of adventure or just a walk around town is always nice. Always happy to share the chores and cook.
