Tell us something interesting about yourself that your students might not know about you.

My family and I are constantly traveling. We never get bored of packing our bags and getting away. It's very rare that you find us in our home on any >1 day break! We all believe traveling gives you a lot of knowledge that no school can teach and that experiences are more valuable than things.
