Dutch teacher (NT2) Rivers International School

Do you want to introduce students from all over the world to the Dutch language? Do you find it an enjoyable challenge that many of our students have a different native language? Then we are looking for you!

Your job
You will teach Dutch to our international students in an inspiring, motivating, and enthusiastic way. As a teacher, you are responsible for the teaching of Middle School classes. You teach in Dutch following the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme. At Rivers, we teach in smaller groups, allowing you to connect deeply with your students.

You are
Some students were born in the Netherlands but have lived abroad for a long time, while others were born abroad. This creates a lot of diversity in the classrooms, as well as differences in proficiency levels. You have the adaptability to handle this well and understand what your students need. You are a coach for the students and a pleasant and energetic colleague. You can create a safe space for your students and encourage them to come to you with their questions. Since our students often have only recently moved to the Netherlands, these questions can vary widely. You are dedicated to helping students, and sometimes their families, adjust to Dutch customs.

About us (Rivers International School Arnhem / Lorentz Lyceum)
We want our students to become caring and principled world citizens. We aim to reach this goal by stimulating their curiosity and developing their personal academic and social potential.

Our balanced and rigorous IB programs enable our students to gain the skills, the breadth and depth of knowledge, and a positive attitude towards learning that will also prepare them for success in later life.

Rivers International School Arnhem is a small and caring international community, which is able to draw on the resources of a larger partner school. We provide a stimulating learning environment and guide our students in an atmosphere of intercultural understanding and respect.

Why do I work at Rivers International School Arnhem?
- 'At Rivers, I particularly like our student-centred curriculum emphasizing the development of skills through inquiry and concept-based teaching and learning – it allows me to fully tap into my own creativity to support my students’ natural curiosity. It is a dream come true for me as a professional teacher.'

- 'The atmosphere here at River is really special. I have taught in many international schools, but nowhere have I encountered such an atmosphere of mutual respect and understanding as at Rivers. It is quite unique, and I feel blessed to be able to be part of it.'

'Hier kan ik leerlingen een gezonde leefstijl meegeven'

“Ik werk nu zo’n 18 jaar op het Maarten van Rossem. Ik wilde graag op een vmbo-school werken. Ik wil mijn leerlingen een gezonde leefstijl meegeven. Hen gezonde keuzes laten maken. Dát motiveert mij, iedere dag weer.”

'Hier kan ik leerlingen een gezonde leefstijl meegeven'

“Ik werk het allerliefste met pubers. Ook al zitten ze onderuitgezakt met een capuchon op hun hoofd tekeningetjes te maken in hun schrift, juíst dan letten ze ontzettend goed op. Dat moet je even doorgronden. Ze hebben echt wel interesse in de wereld om hen heen. Het leukste moment is als je een lampje ziet branden, daar kan ik echt van genieten.” Pieter Hermens, docent Duits en coach OPUS- Lorentz Lyceum
