1. What is your most memorable moment while teaching? When I was teaching in Russia. I was trying to find out if my grade 6 class knew what the word "clean" meant in Russian. I asked one boy and he kept giving me all these wrong answers, but they weren't words I knew in Russian. Finally he said one that I knew - it was the F word in Russian. So I realised he'd been doing that the whole time - basically trying to make a complete idiot of me by saying all these rude words that I didn't know!
2. What grade(s)/ subject(s) do you teach?French, grades 9-11 and Spanish 9-11, as well as planning 9 and 10.
3. How did you and DH meet?We had a mutual friend who invited us both to the same party. I think she did it on purpose to set us up, too.
4. Where would you go on vacation if money and time were not an issue?There are SO many places I want to go to! Top priority right now would be a trip back to England - I've not gone back since I came to Canada 9 years ago, and DH has never been there. I'd also love to tour South America, and visit Japan.
5. How often do you check TBC?Usually, about twice a day - recently a little less since I've had a bit more of a life!
6. Who inspired you to teach?I really don't know. My mum (as well as my aunt and my cousin) is a primary teacher, but she always told me not to go into teaching because I'd find it boring (she thought I was too smart!) I think high school teaching takes a very different personality than primary school, and I am sure I'd not be a good primary school teacher.
7. When did you first travel outside your native country?I was born in Canada and my mum is English, so if you count Canada as the native country I was about 6 months old.
Who taught you to knit?My mum! My nana and great-aunt were knitters too, my aunt can knit although she knits less than my mum, and I have a cousin who is a fantastic knitter. So it's in the family!
What other hobbies do you have?I sew and do various kinds of needlework, I'm a total bookworm, and I like movies, museums, concerts, that kind of thing too.
How long have you been teaching?Since 1996.
What ages do you teach? High school. For my sins

Did you knit the sweater you are wearing in your avatar picture? (I wonder that every time I see it)Yes I did! It was the first time I'd knit anything with more than one colour at once so I was really proud of it. (It's lovely and warm in winter too!)

What is you favourite thing about DH? It's really hard to pick one thing, honestly. I think his generosity - he is incredibly generous to people (me in particular of course)

What genre of novel do you like the most? Again, hard to narrow it down to one, because I'm like Anne of Green Gables - I'd read anything. I guess my favourite kind is 19th century novels - I love Jane Austen, George Eliot, and Lev Tolstoy. I like good sci-fi too.

What is your biggest pet peeve?When people write "your" instead of "you're" or "there" instead of "their" or "they're." It's like nails on a chalkboard!
