With over 10 years of teaching experience in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom I am thrilled to be working for Compass Gharaffa as a Dutch teacher. Shortly after completing my Bachelor of Education (PABO) in Haarlem I moved to the United Kingdom and worked as a class teacher in an International School in Chelsea, London. I have worked with many international students and really enjoy celebrating their different nationalities and languages. I am always amazed by the children’s ability to work in two (or more!) languages, adapt to living in a home away from home, make new international friends yet still feel deeply connected to their native countries.
I have lived in Doha since 2020 and love exploring Qatar, the city and its parks with my husband and two toddlers.
