May I introduce myself? My name is Dirk-Jan. I’ve lived in ‘Riessen’ (Rijssen, Overijssel, Holland) together with my wife since 1990. I teach at the Christian ‘Fruytier Scholengemeenschap Apeldoorn’ and I’ve four growing children who attend primary school. I teach the subjects of Physics, ANW (general nature science) and computer lessons. As additional duties at this school I do ICT, Arbo and I assist with the creation of the timetables for the students. I was born 37 years ago in Haarlem, Noord-Holland, Holland. The photo was taken a year ago and since then I have lost 23 kg in weight by triathlon training.
Willem gave me the enthusiasm for ThinkQuest! He sparks ideas and ensured me that by joining it wouldn’t be too time consuming. Furthermore, I like this concept very much as it can stimulate young people with their own ideas.
