ASH has an exceptionally dedicated and knowledgeable faculty. With its excellent reputation and attractive location in the Netherlands, ASH has been able to recruit quality teachers with a wide range of nationalities and educational backgrounds.
The majority of our teachers come from the US, but we have teachers from many countries, including the UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. We also have teachers from The Netherlands, especially teaching Dutch and physical education. More than 80% percent of our teachers have Master's degrees and more than 30 of our teachers have been at ASH for more than fifteen years.
ASH believes in developing teachers, and has an active professional development program for faculty members. All teachers have an annual professional development plan in which they identify their own learning aims. Professional development activities include working with consultants who come to campus, internet courses, conference attendance, and, what teachers clearly indicate as the best learning opportunity, working with colleagues.
