Teacher in Muscat, Oman

I'm Aaron.

I'm a Melbourne-born, wanderlust suffering primary school teacher and wannabe writer.

In 2015, in search of a change, I quit my safe and cushy teaching job to take on the position of 3rd grade teacher at The American International School of Muscat in Oman, a country I knew precious little about.

I'm still there and can happily say it was the greatest life decision I've ever made. The experience has reinvigorated my passion for the job, brought with it challenges and opportunities for adventure like I've never known, and introduced me to previously untapped interests like rock climbing, scuba diving and the Arabic language...but boy, oh boy is it hot here.

When I'm not teaching, I like to write fiction. I began Deakin's Grad Dip in Professional Writing as a way of improving my skills and have so far found it immensely enjoyable and rewarding.

As well as this, you can often find me in the gym, strumming my guitar or babbling on about the meaning of life in some dingy hostel in a far flung corner of the globe.
