My name is Martina Hauck and I will be your teacher in this course. I am German and have lived for more than 14 years in Ireland. I always wanted to live in Ireland and when I saw an advertisement for a job here, I jumped at the opportunity.
I would describe myself as a positive and enthusiastic person who loves to see people learn a new skill. Authentic, empathetic, and gentle, I truly support others in achieving their goals and dreams, no matter how big or small. I believe that with the right tools, support, and encouragement each of us can take the necessary steps to achieve our dreams and desires.
After work I am an energetic gardener at Malahide Allotments, a community project operated by the Epilepsy Care Foundation – enjoying homegrown, pesticide-free, super-nutritious fruit and vegetables.
So, this is Martina in a nutshell, at home and professionally! Hope to see you soon!
