Origin: I was born in Birmingham in England, but I moved to Edinburgh in Scotland, when I was 18 for university and I lived there for 11 years before moving to Spain..
Places you have been:
I love travelling and have been to many countries, including, Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Poland, Crete, Cyprus, Egypt and Thailand.
I love doing exercise. In Edinburgh I was a fitness instructor for about 8 years and taught many classes including Body Combat, Body Pump, Spinning and Circuits. I also love fighting sports, such as boxing, kick boxing, Muay Thai and MMA. I have been doing these types of sports for about 10 years and I also spent the last two summers in Thailand improving my Muay Thai skills.
My favourite colours are blue and purple.
What makes you happy?
Obviously, keeping fit and healthy makes me happy, but I also love going for walks with my dog, called Bailen. He is a brown and white, English, Springer Spaniel (it’s similar to a Brittany Spaniel). He is crazy but very loving and his favourite activity (after running around) is having a cuddle on the sofa while watching television.
What makes you angry?
I always get angry when I’m hungry. In English we call this being “hangry”.
Which are your best and worst traits?
My best trait is that I’m very friendly but my worst is my stubbornness.
Something unknown about you:
As a child I learned to speak Polish before English because my mother is Polish.
About your career
Why did you start teaching?
I started teaching English because I was bored of the job I was doing in an office and wanted to see more of the world.
What do you like most about teaching?
The best bit about teaching is seeing students progress and knowing you’re the one that has helped them achieve that.
Do you have any anecdote about your classes?
I have lots of anecdotes about my classes but unfortunately I can’t remember any of them at the moment.
If you weren’t a teacher, what would you like to do for a living?
If I wasn’t an English teacher, I would like to have enough money so I wouldn’t have to work
What would you do if you had a time machine?
If I had a time machine I would go forwards and see the Euromillions numbers so I could come back and win. Then I would use my winnings to travel the world.
If you could have a super power, which one would you choose and why?
My super power would be teletransportation so I could click my fingers and be in another part of the country or world. I love visiting new places but I get bored travelling on trains and planes everywhere and it wastes so much time.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
I would love to go to Australia and New Zealand because I’ve always wanted to go see them but I need to save some money first.
If you could meet anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?
Channing Tatum because he’s gorgeous.
