My name is Catherine Banks. I am English and have been living in Arnhem and working at the International School for the last 18 years. I have three daughters of 19, 16 and 9, the eldest two also attended this school during their primary years.
I graduated in 1989 in Oxford and have been teaching for 24 years, first in the UK and then here in Arnhem. I also spent two years in Paris, one when I was studying and one year’s work experience at the Ecole Alsacienne.
I will be teaching the class for 4 days each week (Tues-Fri) and Sander will be teaching on Mondays.
My name is Sander Hulleman. I am Dutch, and was raised in a small village just above Deventer. After receiving my degree as a teacher’s assistant, I started a special study to become a primary teacher for international schools. During this study I got the opportunity to gain a lot of experience at international schools in both Rome, London and finally Arnhem. During my studies I was able to specialize my teaching in both maths and various arts. I am looking forward to teaching year 4 this year.
