Letter to the family

Hi host family!

My name is Michelle, I'm 26 and I'm from Scotland in the UK. It's very beautiful here with lots of greenery and old castles!

I have worked in a school in Thailand for the last 2 years but due to international travel restrictions from COVID-19, I am unable to return there. I am therefore looking to become a big sister in Germany from August until December 2020, or perhaps longer.

I'm hoping to use this opportunity to do something I've always wanted to do: explore Germany! I was actually born in the small German town of Rinteln (between Bielefeld and Hanover) and left when I was very young. I would love the opportunity to be welcomed into a new family who can help me learn some German, learn about the culture and perhaps visit my birthplace!

I have a lot of experience (over 8 years!) working with children and I'll explain these further below for you. I have au paired once in the past (2 girls in Barcelona) and absolutely loved it: they feel like family to me and we still stay in touch!

I am very excited join a new family and become a big sister again! I am a big animal lover, especially dogs and cats. So if you have any animals in your family, I will be very happy with this :)

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask anything you like!

Take care and hopefully we'll see each other soon!

Michelle :)

Experience

As I mentioned before, I have over 8 years teaching/tutoring experience since I was 18 years old.

I have been an au pair for another family in Barcelona: I was the big sister to two wonderful girls aged 6 and 8 for 9 months. I loved this experience: they made me feel so welcome and like family. They showed me Catalonian culture and politics, and we have stayed in touch since I left.

I worked at a school for 2 years in Thailand. I had 9 classes across kindergarten and grade 1 (234 students altogether!). I absolutely loved my kids at this school and I was heartbroken to leave (my school wouldn't renew my contract as Thailand isn't letting foreigners back into the country due to COVID-19). The temples and food in Thailand are incredible, and the people are so lovely!

My other teaching experience has been mainly 1-2-1 private clients in countries such as Spain, Netherlands and Thailand.
