About my life Baby and Kid I was born in 1944 in the Netherlands, when worldwar II was raging over our planet. More than a year later we were freed from the Nazi's by the brave Canadian solders under command of general Harry Crerar. Many died, I saw the fields of white crosses.
As kid I heard the terrible stories from my older family members, telling about the war. Maybe I tell you later more about that.
Schoolboy and Student As young child I was curious about the wonders of our world, with his beautiful flowers, little and big animals, all kinds of people, ever changing clouds and twinkling stars.
As a student I had the opportunity to study the mysteries of space and time. I still have a great admiration for the great thinkers of mankind, from Aristoteles to Einstein.
Wonders will never cease; live and learn.
Teacher and Educator I started my working career as science teacher at a highschool and later as instructor and educator at teacher training college of the CHN University.
Then I worked at a science center as staffmember education for the CHN. Our aim was to promote a positive attitude to technology for children and parents, students and teachers, and other educators.
Since February 2005 I retreated from my work to spend more time for my divers hobbies, children and grandchildren.
