Name: Eva Eisenköck
Where do you call home? Grieskirchen, Austria
Education/Career: I graduated from the Federal Institute for Kindergarten Education. I have worked as a kindergarten teacher for 13 years. In 2018 I had to give up work due to the advance of FA. I was able to complete a retraining course as an administrative assistant. Since 2020 I have been working in the citizen service office, where I have various tasks such as organizing the holiday pass for children, holding elections, and public relations work. It was very difficult for me to give up my job as a kindergarten teacher. Now FA took that away from me, the work I do with children is something that I loved more than anything. I am a very consistent and ambitious person and that helped me to see the new job as a challenge. After a while I was able to see the advantages of the new job and was positively surprised at the varied range of tasks.
Who do you live with? I live alone in a flat on the ground floor with a terrace and a little garden.
What is a typical day for you? During the week, I get up early and make my way to work. I work 4 days a week. After work, I like to move: cycling or to the gym. I like to spend time with friends and family: meet up at a café after work, go out to eat or go to the movies. I also like to relax with a book and music in the sun on my terrace.
