Our names are Vivian Vreeman and Kristina Yoseloff-Van Alfen.
Vivian – I was born and raised in the United States (outside the city of Chicago), but have Dutch parents. I received my Bachelor of Science in Anthropology from Loyola University in Chicago. I worked as a primatologist studying chimpanzee and gorilla behaviour and cognition at the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago before pursuing my Master’s Degree in Forest and Nature Conservation from Wageningen University in the Netherlands in 2007. After working for several years as a primatologist, both in the United States and in the Netherlands, I decided to go back to school to obtain my Bachelor’s degree in Primary Education. At Rivers International School Arnhem I have taught Year 7 and Year 1 in addition to providing learning support for children in all groups. I also taught English to Year 6 & 7 from the Dutch Department.

Kristina – I am an American from California. I grew up in Southern California in a large family. After obtaining my BA (Liberal Arts) I travelled and worked abroad. I worked and lived in Paraguay for three and a half years training teachers and working in rural schools. I taught in both Guarani and Spanish. Upon returning to the states I taught at a middle school for two years before persuing my MA in International Development. I moved to the Netherlands 14 years ago and began a family. Since then I have volunteered weekly at my children’s Montessori school and tutored English to Dutch children. I am a licensed yoga instructor as of 2012 and I teach yoga on a weekly basis. I have been working with Arnhem International School since February 2015. I look forward to working with Vivian and Year 3.
