About Our Family

Michel is secondaryschool teacher at the Waldorfschule (Vrijeschool Zutphen) and love to seek creative ways to learn children the best way they could. Agnès is advisor/policymaker and loves art (especialy artmovies) and culture. 2013 we started our own company: www.beleidsmaker.nl. You can ask us for advising about culture-, education-, youth- and carepolicy, for coaching kids and parents or just stay in our nice house.

Our children:
Zenit (2000) loves to make drawings. He knows every country and city of the world out of his head and reads a lot of historybooks. He studying Human Technology& Design. Vita (2004) loves to paint, swim and play with girlfriends. She is at secondary school (Waldorf). Solei (2009) has a rich fantasy and draws and plays all day long. She loves animals and plants. Paix (2011) is a real heartbreaker and reads books all day long. 

We came from the city, decided in 2007 to live on an island. Now we went back to the city (a small one ;-) and will stay here forever. We live with one cat: Ramla. She is very friendly and love to hug with you, but not with dogs.. because of our cat there are no dogs allowed in our house!

We are non-smoking.

Lifestyle

We like to walk behind the beaches, shopping in old Zutphen or Deventer (17 km), cooking and eating, enjoying good (kids) movies, telling stories. Between all those nice things we make our house better every year..
Since 2013 we have our own company.
