For 32 years I am a teacher at the school with the Bible in Suriname. I am a dedicated teacher and love my profession. From childhood, I wanted to be the teacher. With nieces, nephews and neighborhood kids playing school in the afternoon. Leaves from old notebooks, pencil stubs and the wall was the material we used. Only the teacher had a book, because she had to teach the children! What a great position to be the teacher. I started as a teacher in the elementary school in the district Marowijne in Suriname. An experience that made me grow to be the teacher that I am today. It's a nice job and you must listen to the children. All children are welcome even the naughtiest child. Rules and agreements are very important to me. In the school, I'm the motivator and the tractor. My starting point is: in every situation, we can learn something to and from children. In our conversation, we will get to know each other. Who am I and who are you. A question I'll ask is: where is your interest for this visit? For example, do you want to know more of my person as a teacher, or about the school system I will give you a tour, where you can visit the classroom, the school grounds and offer you a refreshing drink.
