Interview with Mr Andreasz
By Jeanette Abdelmalek
Continuing last year’s teacher interviewing section, we decided to question our PE teacher, who comes from a Greek background, and has been teaching at our school for almost 15 years. With the possibility of refusing to answer any 2 questions, Mr Andreasz answered all 15!
JEANETTE: Can you summarize your life in 3 sentences?
MR ANDREASZ: Childhood full of love, care, fun with family, in Greece, and spending summer holidays in Hungary! As a teenager a life full of sports, hard training, pain, success, and dreams. As an adult, I have a life where I do what I like the most, and I go to Greece every summer to visit my family. Until now, I look back with no regrets, and still dream about the future.
