  • Beschreibung

    I am a high school teacher. I teach chemistry, math (algebra), biology, and Latin. I want to improve my Spanish, Italian, and French (and speak Latin, sed rarum est linguam latinam loqui esset--hope that's correct : ).

    I love the life that comes from accomplishing a goal with others--the camaraderie and community that comes from sharing talent and time is what makes me love Workaway so much!

    My background: I have university degrees in chemical engineering, philosophy, and theology. I know how to make soap (I grew up with a family soap business!), brew beer, and bake bread. I enjoy working with my hands and fixing bicycles. I come from a large family, so living with others is not a challenge for me. I love teaching and tutoring--watching a student gain CONFIDENCE through mastery of a difficult subject makes teaching worth while!

    Mehr Infos zu meinen Sprachinteressen
    As a native English speaker, I can teach English. I am also fluent in Italian and could teach it to an intermediate level. I am able to communicate in Spanish, and would like to become fluent. I would love to practice comprehension and basic French. I am a Latin teacher (high school) and would enjoy practicing my spoken Latin.

  • Was noch ...

    I am an avid pizza maker, pig farmer, meat curer, and general gardener, and coffee roaster. For a living, I teach math, science, Latin, and theology (high school level).

    I love mechanical and electrical maintenance, often using the internet to "figure it out" and get it working again. This is satisfying!

    I enjoy chopping wood and any work that is active and engaging.

    I was raised in a large family (2nd oldest of 6 kids) so I enjoy family life (but also thrive in silence).

    I am deeply Catholic, yet don't feel the need to make others agree with me. I love deep conversations about philosophy, theology, math, science, etc.
