Hello! I am delighted to be part of the AIS community. I have been teaching for the past 16 years and working with children across the early childhood grades. I am an advocate of inquiry-based learning, and I love to learn alongside children as they investigate their world by asking questions, exploring, and making sense of their experiences.
My goal is for children to feel welcome and valued as part of our classroom and school community.
I am originally from Chicago, Illinois in the United States. I have a master’s degree and National Board certification in Early Childhood Education. I love to spend time reading, cooking, playing games, and going on adventures with my family.

Hi everyone! My name is Verónica Leal and I come from sunny Barcelona. I have been living in the Netherlands for the past seven years and I couldn´t like it more!
I enjoy dancing and traveling. I have already had the opportunity to visit quite a few places all around the world.
I believe all children are talented and I am passionate about learning and understand the responsibility we have to educate our international students.
This year I will be in group 2 with Ms. Erin and Ms. Annelies. I am looking forward to seeing you soon!
