Rosalind Van Aalen Grant

Rijen, Netherlands

Having lived in Spain, in the Canary Islands from the age of 11 and then later again for most of my life, moving to the Netherlands was quite a culture shock. Rules, regulations and grey clouds don't exist in the Canary Islands.

When asked the question Where do you come from? I struggle to come up with an answer, so apparently this makes me a TCK (third culture kid)

After moving to France with a backpack , I picked up my husband on the Arc de Triomphe and found myself 10 years later, moving to NL with a container full of stuff, a dog, a cat and a 1 year old daughter.

I run Breda Little Monkeys a social support group for new families arriving in Breda.

I am a part time lecturer in English and Spanish at Avans University of applied sciences in Breda I try to encourage active learning and group participation in the classroom, thereby helping students to become productive and successful citizens.

I am interested in developing e learning and digital technology within teaching. I am currently studying a Masters in Digital Communication in Education.
