Tell me a picture, draw me a story, write me a painting. Sing me a dance, and play me a song.

Amber Park

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.

Christina Havenga

My name is Christina Havenga and I come from Johannesburg, South Africa.

I have ten years of teaching experience and in three of those years I served as a Head of the Department. I have taught many different ages and subjects, but my favorite remains Mathematics. I love working with children and aim to create a safe and enjoyable learning environment for them.

I believe every child is special and unique, deserving of respect and encouragement to reach their full potential.

Having only been in the Netherlands for nine months now, I am excited to call this country my new home and I look forward to what the future holds.

I am looking forward to joining the AIS Team as a Teaching Assistant and learning alongside our current educational team.
