  • Description

    My name is Craig, I’m a University graduate and former A’level teacher of ICT and Computing so known my way around computers but my degree speciality was in multimedia production, website development, video editing etc. I love being creative and making/building new things whether they are physical or virtual creations. I like to learn languages so I can communicate with a variety of people, speaking some Spanish and currently study this, German though I’ve not practised it for many years as well as a little Mandarin and Bulgarian. I have friends around the world who I teach English to. I am well travelled having backpacked around Eastern and Western Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, the United States and Mexico. I would like to spend time in a Spanish speaking country in the future to improve my Spanish and immerse myself in the culture.
    Being a vegan and lover of animals and having lost my beloved Rottweiler two years ago, I enjoy being around and interacting with other dogs and show compassion to all animals. I’m a film and home cinema buff and also enjoy playing video games from time to time.

    I’m Teri, I have been teaching/supporting teenagers and adults with learning disabilities for 17+ years in their home and social life, and supporting/working alongside them in the farm and garden. I have also cared for children in the past ages 6 months to 9 years. I have an especial interest in gardening, permaculture and crafts but I am happy to help with whatever needs to be done. I have enjoyed studying for many years and have a Biology degree, Masters degree in Environmental Rehabilitation, Permaculture Design Certificate, Anatomy, Physiology and Massage Diploma, Reiki 1 and 2 and a Waldorf Teaching Diploma! I have been studying Spanish for a while but would still consider myself a beginner.
    Previously I have spent 6 months volunteering at an eco-community in Spain, where I did my Masters dissertation on dry-land terrace restoration, and also conservation volunteering on Brownsea Island in Poole Harbour, and other areas of Dorset. I have travelled through Eastern and Western Europe and parts of Northern Africa. I was a nanny for a year in the US, on the outskirts of San Francisco. My dream since I was a teenager is to visit Central and Latin America but for now we are keen to explore further in the UK.
    I am an animal lover and have been vegan for 33 years. In an ideal world, I would live off-grid in an eco-house, growing my own food. I enjoy crafts, machine and hand sewing, knitting, gardening, dancing, singing, theatre, cinema, yoga, I am learning about photography and I am an avid reader.
