In addition to teaching I spent several years working as a Veterinary Technician. My biggest interests (other than the family) are history, different people around the world and animals. I enjoy discovering unique information and stories and sharing that with others. There are so many cool things to discover in the world, I enjoy learning new things every day and sharing knowledge with others.
