Reflections from an AIS Canadian Teacher
2016-2018

by Amy How

Amy HowMy time at AFNORTH International School changed my life. Truly. It was the highlight of my teaching career.
When my two year Loan of Service Agreement was over, I was devastated. I knew that I simply could not return to my previous job, in my Canadian hometown. The time spent in the Netherlands had given me far too many personal and professional opportunities. It had opened my eyes to teaching globally and I knew that I wanted more international experiences in the field of education. I was ready for a leap of faith into a new career.

Working as a Mathematics Coach at AFNORTH allowed me to interact with other countries national curriculums and even participate in a variety of training sessions in Germany, Denmark and Cyprus. I had been given the chance to promote my favourite Dutch mathematical tool, called the Rekenrek.

A year and a half later, I am now close to being 100% self-employed in my own new company based in the UK. I am fortunate to travel and promote the Rekenrek through training sessions. To this day, staff at AFNORTH continue to stay in contact with me and give me ongoing encouragement and support. I know that I will forever look back at my time at AFNORTH with the fondest of memories and know that it was those two years that gave me the courage to follow my dreams.
