Hello! I'm Andrea and I am currently living in East Java, Indonesia.
For the past two years I have been teaching English is a rural village in Java- teacher, mentor, community member-experiencing full integration, fluency in Bahasa Indonesia, and accustomed to the culture and way of life.
Firstly, I'm looking to experience culture, preferably with an Indian family because I like a sense of community. Any exchange of culture/language/religion, I love!
In the past I have:
-volunteered at a Bed and Breakfast
-volunteered on a small sustainable farm
-served and bartended at a club in the US
-tutored adults in English
-taught high school students and elementary school kids English
-worked in numerous summer camps in schools K-12
Things I love:
-NATURE! Farming and gardening is my work of choice!
-Kids! Children are the best and I always enjoy working with them.
-Teaching- exchanging knowledge is a beautiful aspect of any relationship
-Culture- learning traditions, beliefs, values
-Language- being able to speak someone's mother tongue is so important!
-Religion- I myself am not religious but I love learn about religion everywhere
-Art- I love making it (even though I'm not very good), learning new art skills :)
-environment/farming/composting/gardening/etc. ALWAYS willing to learn more about this!
-working with kids- in camps/school
I am always searching for ways to improve myself to not only better myself but also better the community and other individuals in society. I love to meet new people and learn new things. I love the environment. I love working with and meeting new people ("team work makes the dream work")!
