Have I already ever told you that I also used to be a child?
Education is a necessary of life.
At least if it is driven as a matter of fact by passion and inspiration.
I want to express my gratitude to a number of sources of inspiration especially:
Gerard Barten who made his education into my challenge.
Jan van der Crabben for the intense meetings in freedom and linkedness.
Ton Schouten for his neverending support and challenge.
Prof. Ferre Laevers and prof. Luc Stevens for their inspiring wisdom.
Liesbeth Spigt, Anja Thijssen, Wilma van Esch and Mariyan Gardenier for their pleasant and synergetic cooperation.
Ludo Heylen for the boundary crossing friendship.
And all children, teachers, members of the board and parents of primary school Uilenspiegel in Boekel, by whom I have been allowed to learn to trust children and teachers and to develop education …… with passion!
