My Name is Anke and I live in Viernheim, which is close to Mannheim and Heidelberg.
I studied Math, English, German and religion to become a teacher. Before I started studying I was an Au-Pair in Chicago for one year. I loved my time abroad, since I love to take care of children, meeting new people, to learn more about different cultures and to improve my English.
Now, I am a primary school teacher and I tutor children in my freetime. I love animals, especially dogs and horses, but unfortunately I don`t have any pets of my own. Therefore I sometimes volunteer at a animal shelter or help out friends with taking care of ther animals, for example by walking their dog.
Furthermore I am very fond of travelling. I would love to go on a round-the-world trip, but right now I don`t have the time, which is why I thought it would be a great experience to be a part of the work away community. I am very grateful to have had the chance to visite a lot of different countries with my family. I have been to Spain, France, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Portugal, Greece, England, Ireland, USA, Canada and the Czech Republic.
My hobbies are mostly being outside, going for walks, riding my bike and planning new trips to explore other countries and the world. I love reading, watching movies, meeting with friends and trying new things.
I am an outgoing and sociable person, responsible and adabtable. I like meeting new people, visiting new cities and countries and getting to know new cultures. I will be more than happy to contribute in different tasks to help you.
I think it is a great way to meet people, to discover regions, cultures, new lifestyles, to share the local life of the hosts and learn a lot more.
