Portland, Oregon in the US!
I'm moving to Portland in August, so excited!
Yay! I love Portland! In case you like beautiful places and short hikes right in the city; check out Mt Tabor. And since August; Broughton Beach Park has a sandy beach to swim in the Columbia River. Sauvie island beach is also really nice.
Awesome! If you ever need any recommendations, I've been here for 10+ years and know the place like the back of my hand!
The Netherlands! 😊

Hi Kaitlin, I love your mission to use coding to help your students and other teachers. I'm an ex-teacher and beginner coder who would love to follow your journey and encourage each other on here and Twitter! 🙂 Hi from Melbourne, Australia 👋🏼
Hey Kat! High fives for teachers! I would love to hear more about your story as well. Coding is the absolute best. You will love it!
High five Kaitlin! 👏🏼 I was a high school English, literature and literature teacher for a little bit. LOVED IT but I prefer a more introverted working style. I see you teach French?
I am a former educator as well! Hi, from Ohio USA!
Hi Lynnie, nice to meet you 👋🏼 😃 I'm from Australia but I've actually been to Ohio once before, I wonder if our paths crossed 🤣 What did you used to teach?
haha, that would be an INSANELY small world, wouldn't it???!!! I taught K-5 grade Special Education Reading. I was in for about 11 years, then COVID hit and much like a lot of the world, things shifted a bit for me in my career.
Sounds like a good shift, Lynnie!
Pittsboro, NC! 🙌

Hi from another farmer! (originally Western District, Vic - now in Melbs though)
Lol, I'm not exactly farming here, just happen to be in the rural areas. I'm originally from Kuala Lumpur and after living here for 2 years, I don't think I can cope going back to the city! How are you enjoying life in Melb?
Hehe, well I'm glad you're liking rural Vic. Sounds like a huge change from KL! What do you like best about regional life? I love Melbourne (and our coffee, among other things) but have lived here for ages and am itching to travel or live in another country.
Less people, less traffic! Covid restrictions are easing now so it's not too early to make plans for travelling.
