Kim has an enormous passion for young people. This passion is reflected in the way that she interacts with pupils and that pupils interact with her. She is always willing to spend her break time chatting to pupils with problems and also spends time after school helping pupils with problems related to school work or with personal problems. Kim is a person of high integrity. Her colleagues and pupils trust her fully and she is always prepared to help anyone professionally and also personally. In meetings about pupils’ progress Kim shows that she knows her pupils’ academic progress and development as well as their personal development intimately. Kim developed an excellent curriculum and both Dutch and English lesson material in which she does not just teach pupils the facts about her subject, but instils in her pupils an understanding of other cultures and compassion for those less fortunate than themselves. Kim has also organised trips for our pupils 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.
