Introduction for jackfrank

Hello, my name is Andrew Spacey and I am currently working as a teacher in the north of England. I teach drama and English, the former to young adults, the latter to ESOL students of all ages. My hobbies include walking, travel, observing Nature, poetry and art. Living in west Yorkshire I am close to what could be called a world class sculpture park - the Yorkshire Sculpture Park - 500 acres of rolling countryside, sheep and sculptures. Over the years I've had articles and poetry published in various magazines and online. I've also written for newspapers, including the Guardian here in the UK. I also write online. Favourite foods include pesto, roast potatoes, raw carrots, sausages and fruit cake. I also enjoy ales and the occasional single malt whisky. Being married to a Dutch woman I get to eat their national dish once a year at New Year - boerekool - which is mashed potatoe and kale, smoked sausage and lashings of thick gravy.

Welcome to Persona Paper, I look forward to reading some of your posts as I like to learn about places that I never visited before. I have traveled to many places years ago while I was in the US Navy, but never to the UK.
