Mr. John - Contributing to a Creative Environment

Meet Mr. John, ECC Teacher since 2011. After qualifying with a Bachelor's in teacher certification in Michigan, and a Master's degree in Texas, Mr. John’s first teaching job was at the University of Texas in Arlington. Once he moved to the Netherlands, he first started at ASH as a substitute teacher, moving on to spend four years as a teaching assistant and then a further five years in Kindergarten. Now onto his current role as a TK teacher.

“I originally moved to the Netherlands from the U.S with the intention of staying a year. That was a long time ago!” 

What does the #ASHexperience mean to you? 
My experience has given me a new appreciation of the phrase, "Just say maybe."  I've enjoyed living in Europe so much, and I know it has a lot to do with the rewarding and meaningful work I am doing. The ASH community fosters a positive, creative, and professional environment - these are important to me.

If you could give our students at ASH one piece of advice what would it be?
Take care of yourself, your family, and your friends.
