Hi ! My name is Lise and I am a primary school teacher in France.
I love to play theater and to listen and tell stories. I am a pretty calm person but also very cheerful. I love to be active and choose workaway because of that.
I am very eager to learn and am very diligent about work. I want to learn about the world and its many cultures.
Experience in workaway:
In summer 2016, I did workaway in a japanese family for a few weeks, helping with the chores and kids. I enjoyed spending time with them and being able to travel by myself when I had free time.
In summer 2017, I went to Italy to help a summer camp. I had a blast working there with the other workawayers.
In summer 2018, I worked, mainly as a waitress (also did some cleaning), in a b&b in Normandy. I learned a lot and had a great time with everyone.
I was in Japan from the end of summer 2019 to the beginning of summer 2020 with a Working Holiday Visa.
In september 2019, I helped cleaning in a hotel in Hakuba (Nagano).
In october 2019, I was a housekeeper helping with housework and walking the dogs in Osaka.
From November 2019 to January 2020, I helped a NPO in Tokushima with watering flowers, cleaning the river, helping at international nurseries, helping with tourists, helping on a radio show,...
In April 2020, I have been helping at a cowfarm in Okinawa.
In May and June 2020, I have been helping japanese students to practice english.
Since I am a teacher I can take care of kids and teach them english. Although I am not a native speaker I can speak english pretty well and will be to help you practice that language. Of course I can teach french at a higher level. I have a university diploma to teach french to non-french speakers.
I am very willing to learn and I would enjoy whatever you could teach me. I get along well with animals and I am a patient person. I enjoy working outside. Also, I love to smile :).
I enjoy working as a team with other workawayers.
I enjoy cooking, I cook vegetarian meals but I would still eat meat if someone cooked it.
I have been practicing yoga from time to time for a year now.
I had the opportunity to learn a lot during my previous workaways (see above) and I hope to keep it that way for the next ones.
More details about my language interests
I can teach French, and can help practice english. Because of my job, I am used to teaching basic english to kids. I learned a bit of german in high school and would like to practice again so that I can have a conversation in german. I learned japanese before I went to Japan, I would also like to pratice more.
I will do my best !
