Qualifications: Certificate in Education (Oxen). Diploma of TESOL
Passions: Teaching of course. Travel, running, skiing and books and all animals.
"Noosa is a long walk on a golden beach as the sun rises and a cocktail as the sun goes down. Noosa is a deep blue ocean swim or a lazy stroll in the National Park. Noosa is beach side cafes and funky bars."
"All the teachers that I’ve met are incredibly great. It’s not only because of their fantastic teaching style, but also how learning a language can be so interesting by having regular chats with your friends from such a variety of nationalities. Living here is super relaxed. It has totally widened my horizons!"
"One of my best friends had been to Lexis Noosa 3 years ago and he gave the school a great reference. Now after more than 6 months in Noosa I can confirm that is an amazing place to live. I have met a lot of new people from around the world who now are my friends and my Australian family."
"During the 6 weeks at the school I have learned and experienced many things. I went canoeing, on a trip to Fraser Island and the Australia Zoo. They were really great trips! I won’t be able to ever forget these experiences. At school I have studied not only English but also learnt about different cultures and their traditions."
