My name is Catherine Banks. I am English and have been living in Arnhem and working at the International School for the last 16 years. I have three daughters of 19, 16 and 9, the eldest two also attended this school during their primary years.
I graduated in 1989 in Oxford and have been teaching for 24 years, first in the UK and then here in Arnhem. I also spent two years in Paris, one when I was studying and one year’s work experience at the Ecole Alsacienne.
I will be teaching the class for 4 days each week (Tues-Fri) and Viv Allatt will be teaching every Monday. Viv actually started the International Stream of the school 30 years ago! We have worked together regularly sharing a class during our time here.
