    Description

    Update:

    We now need sb. by Mid-August possibly till end of October with 2 weeks house-sitting in October.

    Please read the following carefully, before sending a message:
    If you prefer to keep chickens in your garden, rather than having them on your plate, if you are an energetic, nature-loving person, lead an active, healthy lifestyle and necessarily like kids, we might be a good fit for you.

    Our kids (10 and 13 yrs) used to be Home-Schoolers (or rather Un-Schoolers) - now they attend the local Waldorf school, which involves an hour of travelling for them each day. I'm a teacher and a teacher-trainer. I think differently. I intend to make education more innovative and am super interested in agile approaches to education, teaching and schooling. At this moment I quit my teaching position and am working for a school book publisher to create an all digital project based teaching aid and besides I'm freelancing in the field of Educational Design Thinking.
    My husband Adrian is a self-employed sociologist. We are both quite busy with our work (as most people in Switzerland are) - which is why we we love to have a helping hand every now and then - we love to share stories, recipes, getting to know other cultures and mindsets and practise languages (English and French mainly) - we also love to have some peace and rest after a long day though and appreciate if our working guests do things by themselves in between. We'll surely help you with ideas.

    Twice a week we rent a gym-hall and do some sports together (parcour, acrobatics, aerial acrobatics), which you'd be welcome to join in.
    The kids love to play chess, create sth. on the sewing machine and/or do some woodwork, use a graphic tablet, learn some coding, do acrobatics, mountain-biking, inline-skating, Vietnamese martial arts, drawing/painting, do Aerial Silk, play the drums, the cajon and the piano or the guitar, climbing (out- and indoors, I'm a climbing instructor), jumping on the trampoline (we have a good one in the garden) ... - if that's sth. you could share with them: great!

    We are living on the edge of a forest (Könizerbergwald) in a big house with a big garden, 5 hens and a cat - yet it is just a 15' ride on the bus or train to the capital of Switzerland (it's Bern, not Zurich). I'd love to do more things by myself (though mostly lacking time) - from sewing to knitting to repairing stuff to planting veggies - if you could help here, that'd be great as well!
    One of my long term plans is to do a beautiful wall painting on our house - if you happen to have some experience here that'd would be super cool!
    We're leading an active and environmental conscious life and would like to have somebody in our house that does the same. We eat mostly vegetarian. Healthy, organic food is important to us. We don't smoke and don't want any smoking in or around the house. We are agnostic people, but are OK with religious minded folks, as long as they are not trying to impose their religion onto us. Equal gender rights are important to us.

    Your room is approx. 30 square meters, furbished in a modern way, in the souterrain (which will allow you more privacy) - you can see a picture of it in our photo gallery. You are of course welcome to use all the shared rooms (living room, office in the attic, kitchen, fitness room) as well. The bathroom is shared with the kids. We don't offer hotel-service. You'd be expected to do and undo your bed yourself and to clean up after yourself, in the bathroom, in the toilet, in the kitchen and in your room before your departure.

    We travel a lot ourselves, have done WWOOFing and workaway and would love to give others the opportunity to travel the world without feeling like a tourist and to have such great experiences we ourselves were able to have.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    You can learn a lot about alternative schooling and education and learning in general, possibly about Educational Design Thinking. You can get an insight on how to manage a family, how to maintain a house and a garden, how to keep chickens, how to encourage free thinking. You can learn German, improve your English by using it (I'm an English teacher), Aerial Acrobatics, climbing, skiing, inline-sakting and/or cross country skating.

  • Aide

    Aide

    In general we ask you to help out where possible (cooking, shopping, taking care of the chickens, the cat, the garden,...) and share your passion, language and culture with us and foremost you're encouraged to work towards a relationship with our kids. Do things with them in either French or English, so that they can keep practising those languages. They are aged 10 and 13 years. Possibly pick them up and drive them to places.
    Apart from that: Anything you are good at - show it to them!

    I won't write an exact plan with tasks for you, neither am I planing to track the hours you're working with us - I do expect self reliance.

    We take turns in preparing dinner and lunch.
