Celebrate diversity, inspire creativity, be empathetic and always stay true to who you are.

Jennifer Olden

Hi, my name is Jennifer. I am from Ireland. Before moving to the Netherlands two years ago, I lived in Dubai. 

On my teaching journey, I have had the privilege of working in an international progressive school as well as spending some time working as a special education teacher. 

As a kid’s yoga teacher who is trained in therapeutic play skills, I bring a holistic approach to learning. I provide a supportive space for children to discover themselves as individuals. I believe it is equally important to help children understand their role within their community. By fostering a sense of global citizenship, I encourage students to appreciate diversity, practice empathy, and recognize their potential to make a positive impact. Learning should not only be about personal growth but also about understanding and contributing to the world around us. 

My aim is to inspire and empower children to become confident, compassionate, and curious learners. 

Outside of teaching, I enjoy reading, travelling and cooking. You will find me spending lots of time outdoors in nature.
