  • Description


    Sorry folks, right now we have autum break and I can't make any promises as we need to see how this Corona shit develops. I'm not sure that I can still bring people to school after the break. I will update here as soon as I know.

    I'm Laura, a nomad who is currently back at home in Germany for a change.
    After a long break I'm starting my new full time job as science and maths teacher in a middle and high (comprehensive) school in Hannover, grades 5, 10 and 12 (age 10-18). Welcome to join me! We have several special needs kids and the majority has a migration background. Most of them are super sweet, some can be a challenge sometimes. I'm sure many will benefit from you.
    Not sure how exactly this will look like, it depends on your language skills, talents and interests. If you are into teaching you can help me prepare the lessons, or just be there for the kids in the class room, if Corona rules allow. We will see. For now it's ok. Ideally you enjoy cycling, because I usually bike the 12 km one way too school. There's a tram but it takes the same amount of time and costs money.
    Furthermore you can spend time with my parents and my friends' children (from Syria), help in the garden and please definitely help with cooking. We have a piano. You could teach my dad if you can. Also, my dad has a small workshop and owns almost every woodwork tool you can wish for, in case you're into that.
    In my rare spare time I train Karate and spend time in nature. My parents practice various sports several times a week as well. We like board games but play too rarely... I'm vegetarian, my parents aren't. Our cooked meals are mostly vegan.
    I have hosted and stayed with some 300 travellers. I came here to find people that like to stay a little longer (and because barey any cs'er is keen on my lovely hometown, meh). I'm brand new here, will slowly improve profile + pics.

    Let's talk about that when you are here. We live just 8 km or 15 min by tram from the city center, 5 min walk from a forest and 10 min walk from the countryside.
