Hello there! I am excited to be a part of the AIS community. I am passionate about creating a culturally inclusive, neurobiologically-aligned classroom community in which students can inquire and use their creativity to express their learning process. I believe empathy and connection lead us to deeper learning in all aspects of life.
“Where attention goes, neural firing flows, and neural connection grows.” -Daniel J. Siegel
I am from the United States and have been able to live and work in various US cities and schools. I have a master’s degree in Elementary and Special Education. I enjoy traveling with my husband, spending time outdoors, cooking, and reading.

Hi everyone! My name is Verónica Leal and I come from sunny Barcelona. I have been living in the Netherlands for the past six 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.
