Having lived in Spain, in the Canary Islands from the age of 11 and then later again for most of my life, moving to the Netherlands was quite a culture shock. Rules, regulations and grey clouds don't exist in the Canary Islands.
When asked the question Where do you come from? I struggle to come up with an answer, so apparently this makes me a TCK (third culture kid)
After moving to France with a backpack , I picked up my husband on the Arc de Triomphe and found myself 10 years later, moving to NL with a container full of stuff, a dog, a cat and a 1 year old daughter.
Now, my daughter, aka Funky Monkey on the blogs is 4 and I now have a second daughter baby monkey who is 3 months old. We are raising our family to be trilingual (English, Spanish and Dutch.)
I am involved with Breda Expats, where I am the PR and Social Media coordinator. I run the children's activities - Breda Little Monkeys and Bumps and Babies.
My blogs talk about raising a family in the Netherlands and specifically in Brabant. Moreover they hopefully give readers an insight into expat life, the Netherlands and multicultural/lingual families.
I am a part time lecturer in English and Spanish at a University in Breda I try to encourage active learning and group participation in the classroom, thereby helping students to become productive and successful citizens.
I am interested in developing e learning within teaching. I am currently studying a Masters in Digital Communication in Education. I also have a blog for my Digital related musings too.
