Pastoral care is not the destination but the nourishment of the learning journey (Mann, 2006).
I believe that education is a life passage for each child and I find it a great honour to nourish their learning journey and overall care.
My enthusiasm for teaching and learning developed seventeen years ago, when I volunteered at my daughter’s Playgroup in the Netherlands.
I strive to promote academic as well as social successes for all students. As a leader, I find it important to constantly reflect on my practices and
to listen to stakeholders. Furthermore, working in various International school settings has taught me to be open-minded towards the ideas, values
and cultural context of others.
