It was a pleasure to host Marloes Vrolijk from Leiden University for a month-long teaching placement in April. Marloes is currently on the university’s World Teacher Programme and wrote to RCN asking if we would provide her with some teaching practice. During her internship, Marloes co-taught lessons in TOK (Theory of Knowledge) and Global Politics and observed classes in Development Studies (Geography). Marloes was fully engaged in extra academic commitments, joining in enthusiastically with water polo sessions, yoga classes, cultural events, fund-raising work of one of RCN’s charities and the Faculty Show. Marloes was a superbly enthusiastic, curious and willing temporary member of staff who quickly became respected and valued by faculty and students alike – we are certain that she will develop into a highly professional, caring, energetic, flexible and reliable teacher.
