What do you Like most about SIUE?: I like how green and beautiful SIUE is. I really Enjoy the SIUE Gardens and wildlife here.

What do you find to be the biggest difference between the US and your home country?: The size- The Netherlands is very small in size if you drive for 4 hours here you could still be in this state, but in the Netherlands if you drive for 4 hours you would cross two country borders.

Interesting Fact: When I was sixteen I took a test that told me that I should be an Insurance Mathematician and I thought that would be the so boring. And now I teach Math and Statistics. While in the Netherlands I taught middle school and high school.
