“A lot of scientific evidence suggests that the difference between those who succeed and those who don’t is not the brains they were born with, but their approach to life, the messages they receive about their potential, and the opportunities they have to learn.” - Jo Boaler

Taylor Galloway

Hi! My name is Taylor Galloway (Ms. Taylor). I am from the United States. I have my Master’s in Teaching for Early and Elementary Education and have taught in 5 other countries.

This is my first year at Amstelland International School. I am so excited to teach Group 2C!

I love traveling (51 countries and counting), drinking coffee, eating chocolate, skiing (although it’s difficult to do in The Netherlands), and journaling!

Ivy Yu

I am a teaching assistant for Group 2C. This is my twelfth year of being an educator.

I am originally the Philippines, and I have worked in international schools in Asia and the Netherlands. I came to the Netherlands eight years ago to do a master’s in Child Development and Education because I am passionate about the Early Years.

I advocate for student voice, and I believe that young minds are far more capable of higher-order thinking when given agency of their learning.

In my free time, I like to read fiction, enjoy food, and travel.
