T is for Teacher

21032676_10207860576587289_4422324082457435045_nHello! My name is Halina Król-Szremska.
It looks like we’re gonna spend some time together throughout the next few months (or so), so let me tell you something about myself.
When I was about seven or eight my mother asked me who I wanted to be in the future. “A teacher!” – I said, no hesitation whatsoever. And believe it or not, up to now nothing has changed in this respect. Even now, after eleven years of teaching, I haven’t changed my mind. Why? Because when you have great and enthusiastic students (who I believe you are!) teaching is fun!
About me – I love mountains and whenever I can I pack up and get out of the town to take a deep breath, preferably out of the beaten track. In the winter I change my trekking boots for cross-country skis! I also love mountain running and my dream is to run a marathon one day 🙂
jakuAs for more indoor hobbies, I love reading. I’m a great fan of A Song of Ice and Fire. Before I started reading it, I’d thought fantasy novels weren’t worth a try, but Mr George R. R. Martin made me change my mind! Now, after reading all five volumes, I just can’t wait for the sixth novel which is still being written. I am also a fan of crime novels and I’ve read everything from the desk of Agatha Christie, Charlotte Link and Camilla Läckberg. From time to time I also like to sit back on my couch and watch a good movie or an episode of one of my favourite TV series, e.g. Game of Thrones or House of Cards. And last but not least, I am a board games geek! I’ll try to prove during some of our lessons that board games are FUNtastic! And so, I hope, our classes will be! However, as they say, it takes two to tango. These two are: YOU – my students, and me. So let’s dance, shall we?
