Interests and Hobbies

I am an avid music lover and regularly attend various live shows and concerts. However, my passion is quite simply the joy I feel from travelling and meeting new people. I have travelled all over the world and I have often been told that I am a great listener and possess a natural ability to put people at ease. It is for this reason why so many people confide in me and it is my honour to have been welcomed into an array of different cultures and gain an authentic experience of varying social norms. I believe that it is this personality trait of mine that has made me such a successful teacher today and I would love the opportunity to progress into a more pastoral role in the future.
