Karen Mulders

01-07-1975                

Who am I?

Spontaneous, lively and creative. I am flexible and all-round, highly inquisitive and fascinated by science and the possibilities each new insight offers us.

Always glad to help, never afraid to try. Organising, enthusing and informing are a second nature. I love to work with people, both one-on-one and in groups.

I have academic and didactic skill as well as practice.

Dutch and English are my native tongues. I can speak Russian, French and German.

My hobbies are photography, developing teaching materials, traveling, playing djembe & guitar and encaustic art. I am an active volunteer with the Groningen Bats Association.

" The whole art of teaching is only the art
of awakening the natural curiosity of
young minds
for the purpose
of satisfying it afterwards. "

“The world is a book and
those who do not travel
read only the first page.”
Anatole France Augustinus
