In addition to her freelance teaching, she is also a teacher of Helping Care and Welfare (level 2) at senior secondary vocational education. Many students have a foreign language background in this study, which is an extra challenge and motivation for Nienke to familiarize them with the language of care. What drives her? The interaction with students, adding depth and making the teaching material as attractive as possible. All this means that she stands before a class with a smile.
