Being my first foray into the world of home page design,
this may well be the pischiest design you've ever seen. Well, hell, why not book
mark this site and laugh about it with your friends.
My name is Lineke (but I'm known to most as Lynn!). I trained as a secondary English and Drama teacher. I completed and was awarded my degree
in 1997 at Flinders University in
Adelaide, South Australia. My favourite things to do are bush walking, camping, seeing movies, choral singing, drinking way too much Diet
Coke, reading and generally enjoying life! I have taught in the US and England and in the meantime visited Ireland, Holland, Tanzania, Luxembourg, Scotland, Canada, Switzerland, Lanzarote, Mexico, the Philippines, Hong Kong, Italy, France, Germany, the Czech Republic, Austria, the Bahamas, Greece, Poland and Northern Ireland in the past 5 years. Right now, I am working in Adelaide and happily living in my hometown for the first time in 6 years!
D uring my uni years, I regularly
attended Intervarsity Choral Festivals, the last one in Melbourne IVCF in January 1998. (My brief hello at AIV 2001 not withstanding!)
If you're interested in the choral music scene in Australian Universities, you can find more information on the official AICSA website. You can also find the link to the Melbourne Universtity Choral Society on that page, of which I am currently a participating member.
O n arrival in London many years ago now, I joined a theatre group called the Woodhouse
Players and somehow got "convinced" into playing the principal boy in
their Christmas Pantomime - "Little Red Riding Hood and the Three Little
Pigs". I also took a role in their subsequent production "Don't Blame It
On The Boots", and directed "The Philanthropist" by Christopher Hampton. I
never learned my lesson about panto and played an all-singing, all-dancing handmaiden in the 2000 panto "Aladdin" and the evil fairy, Lexus in the 2001 panto "Sleeping Beauty" which I co-authored with my friends, Derna and Rebecca. Photos of these plays can be
found on the website, along with details about any upcoming productions.
I n Newport News, Virginia, I taught English and Journalism at Denbigh High School website. The website's not that exciting but has contact information on it and a stunning picture of our mascot, the Denbigh Patriot. (No, I'm not kidding!) I taught two years there and it was an amazing experience, not only because it allowed me to meet my now husband, Ryan, who was also teaching English there!
