Meet Nate…

I’m Nate, a new teacher at Number 16 School. Since I was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, I’ve been zigzagging my way around the UK. I spent most my childhood in the sunny town of Bournemouth and the first years of my adult life at University in Birmingham, where I studied English with Philosophy and Theology. I stuck to the University for another year to work for the Students’ Union, which was by far the most difficult and rewarding job I have ever done (so far). That’s when I made my first close Spanish friends. You may be surprised to hear (although you shouldn’t be really) that they were largely from Zaragoza. I heard a great deal about Zaragoza from them; the beautiful buildings; the long history and the friendly people. It was a recipe for a great city and I was quickly convinced that I had to experience it.
I was looking for a job teaching English and low and behold, I found this one. Perfect! I’ve not seen nearly enough of Zaragoza yet, but since we got here, the other teachers and I have been hard at work, doing Number 16’s intensive training. Now, we’re all ready to and very eager to start teaching. I have so much more to say, but you wouldn’t want to read an essay anyway. So goodbye for now, and I look forward to meeting you very soon!
