MELANIE: our new English assistant

Melanie McManamon is also our new English assistant this year.

She is 22 and her birthday is on October 11th. She's from San Jose, California, which is very close to San Francisco, and she lives in the suburbs of the city.Her parents are called Kevin and Nathalie, and she has 2 brothers: Trevor, who is 24, and Luke, who is 19. Other members of Melanie's family are her 2 dogs Allie and Brie, which are schnauzers.

She went to a private high school called Archbishop Mitty and when she graduated she moved to Portland, Oregon to study Education (Teaching) at the University of Portland for 4 years. She said people and things are so weird in Portland that there's a TV show called ''Portlandia'' broadcasted all around the USA that only talks about that place. In Portland there's a very famous doughnuts shop that sells many different types of doughnuts called ''Voo Doo Doughnuts''.
She loves photography. She also likes hiking, cliff jumping and kayacking, as well as playing frisbee. Another thing she likes to do is going to Monterey, where there's and aquarium. She also travels a lot; she has been to Spain, England, Ireland, France, Mexico and Costa Rica.She likes alternative music and her favourite song is 'Stolen Dance' from Milky Chance and her favourite TV programme is 'Castle' and she loved the book 'Atonement' when she read it.
Her favourite food is cheese burguer, although she  also likes Spanish omelettes so much.

A person that really inspired Melanie was a teacher of her, called Kate, who unfortunately died last summer.Finally. she told us that as in California there are a lot of earthquakes, she has lived a few of these situations.
