I grew up in Selby, a small town near York in the north-east of England. I studied Modern Languages (including a little
bit of Polish) at the University of Sheffield, and spent a year living in France and Spain as part of my studies. I loved the
experience of living in other countries, and a year after graduating I moved to Poland to experience life here, improve my language
skills and of course to teach English! I've been living in Poland for a year and a half and plan to stay much longer – I love Polish
food, people and culture, although I'm not so keen on the winters!
I spent my first year in Poland working at a language school in Koszalin, where I learnt a great deal about teaching English to young
learners. I'm passionate about languages and especially enjoy teaching children because of their energy and enthusiasm. I believe
it's important to have fun while learning, and that a lively and engaging classroom environment both helps students to remember new
language and motivates them to take an active part in the language learning process.
When I'm not at school I love reading, exploring Łódź (especially the zoo!), watching films and studying Polish.
