Teacher introduction

Hi – welcome to Margate and our happy family by the sea. We are a sporty family with 4 boys who love football, rugby and swimming. We live in a large house near to both the sea and a large park. I have been a teacher for over 20 years and enjoy creating exciting and interesting English lessons. We look forward to showing you our lovely seaside and perhaps visiting our beach hut.
Teacher home details
Our home is a large extended house with a front and back garden. Your bedroom is also large and bright and is at the top of the house with a view towards the park. The bathroom is private, opposite your bedroom, with a shower, sink and toilet. The house is on a quiet road near to the park and within walking distance of the sea.

Teacher about the local area
We are lucky to live by the sea and in the summer we spend lots of time at our beach hut – swimming, having BBQs and playing games on the beach. We are also close to a large leafy park where we can play sports. Margate has a vintage theme park called Dreamland and lots of art galleries including the Turner Contemporary. The nearest city is Canterbury which has historical buildings and shops.
Teacher family
We are a family of six with me (Nicky) and John in our 40’s. We have 4 sons born in 2004, 2006, 2008 and 2015. The three eldest love being active and they belong to lots of clubs such as football, rugby and swimming. They also like to play on their Xbox. John also coaches football and rugby at a local club. The youngest boy hasn’t started school yet but he likes to meet new people and show them his toys
