Janneke Van de Griendt

Janneke obtained a master’s degree in Dutch language and culture from Leiden University in The Netherlands. After graduating she participated in the Dutch Teach First programme. She started working as a teacher, did research at the Dutch Ministry of Education and obtained a teaching degree from the University of Amsterdam.

Janneke strongly believes educating children is not only about teaching them wonderful things about the Dutch language, but also about guiding them in becoming responsible, respectful and inspiring individuals.

Janneke loves travelling and reading, preferably modern literature. Argumentation theory was always her main focus during her studies. Janneke believes that those who are capable of writing and presenting a flaming speech, can conquer the world.
