Ben, "new" starter at Number 16 school

Hi, I’m Ben, I’m 27 and I’m a new starter at Number 16 School. Prior to joining number 16 I lived a lowly existence working in the claims department of a small insurance company in Bishops Cleeve, just outside Cheltenham. Bored of the monotonous routine and over 50’s office chat, I craved pastures new. So, one rainy summers day I signed up to a TEFL course, through TEFL England (on the advise of a close friend) and the rest as they say is history. I finished the course and began searching for employment. One of my goals is to learn Spanish, so Spain seemed an obvious first choice and I managed to get a job at a Summer camp in the south (very hot and chaotic, but a lot of fun) before getting a job with Number 16 at their school in Zaragoza. I have to say, I have found the city to be quite enchanting and am looking forward to having a lot of fun here in the forthcoming years. It’s location is an obvious plus as the bright lights of Madrid and Barcelona are but a stone throw away. Another plus for this city I now call home.
Ben having a nice time
Right, time for a little history about yours truly. I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, which is where I lived for the early years of my life before moving to England at the age of 7. I moved to Cheltenham, which remained my home until I decided to up sticks for the allure of Spain. I finished school at 18 and went straight into employment. I had a thirst to travel, so abandoned the idea of University for a more exotic path. I have been lucky enough to visit America, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Taiwan and most of Europe. In addition to travel, I very much enjoy sports, especially football (Arsenal is the only team worth caring about) boxing, rugby and curling. I’m also a keen music lover, as long as its not reggaeton!
