I grew up in New Zealand and Australia and immigrated to Israel at the age of 19. In the course of the service, I lived in Kibbutz Mizra with an adoptive family, and after the army I lived in the north and taught for twenty years in a variety of challenging areas: coordinating projects for Ethiopian immigrants and youth at risk; specialized in early childhood education and in special education through movement.
About 12 years ago I moved to the Ben-Gurion Midrasha with my children. I was looking for a place where life would be challenging - I wanted to feel that "the sky is the limit." I have always been interested in history, geography, and integration. I wanted to understand in depth the space in which I live and relate the historical stories to the place, to the Negev, to people.
Today I am a certified tour guide; bicycling instructor - specialized in cycling with women and delinquent youth, drug and alcohol addicts and Bedouin youth; I teach movement for preschoolers.
Through these activities, I implement and express my interests and the experience I have acquired over the years in education and training.
