Kim has an enormous passion for young people. This passion is reflected in the way that she interacts with students and that students interact with her. She is always willing to spend her break chatting to students with problems and also spends time after school helping students with problems related to school work or with personal problems. Kim is a person of high integrity. Her colleagues and students trust her fully and she is always prepared to help anyone professionally and also personally. Kim develops excellent curricula (in both Dutch and English) in which she does not just teach students the facts about her subject, but instils in her students an understanding of other cultures and compassion for those less fortunate than themselves. Kim has also organised trips for our students to several West-African countries to work and live with local young people their age and to do voluntary work with local NGOs. I can highly recommend Kim. I know she has a dream and a passion for this type of work.
