Just a few words about me - having over 25 years of English teaching experience, I was born and raised on America's East Coast and spent half my life living, working and studying all over the United States. While traveling abroad during my studies, I decided that once I finished university, I wanted to discover the adventure of living in Europe and have been here ever since!
