Southworth - Teacher - South Africa

Kayt Southworth

South Africa

Summary

I am a young, vibrant woman with a bubbly personality. I am diligent, resourceful and creative. I love to spend time with people. My hobbies are reading, writing, acting, dancing, cooking, being hospitable and spending time with my family and friends. I have many years of experience in teaching (in classrooms, private houses and swimming pools) across the age spectrum and have also worked extensively in office environments. I love animals but my two cats are the most special animals in the world to me! I enjoy taking photographs and working with children as much as possible. I have travelled a great deal and have lived in France (twice); Germany (twice); Switzerland; England (thrice); Ireland and South Africa. I have also visited America; Belgium and Holland. I have now settled in South Africa but I wouldn't say no to travelling again - for a short while - if the opportunity came up. I believe I have a compassionate heart and I love to help those less fortunate than I. I speak fluent English and German, a little Afrikaans and a smattering of French and Latin. I love to learn new languages and skills and am a very fast learner - when I set my mind to something I do it with passion and excellence.
