Teacher of the Year nominee #5: the sports enthusiast (video)

Linda van der Nat

The fifth and last nominee for the Teacher of the Year Award 2018 has barely returned from Zambia for a day and is already leaving on an excursion with his students.

The student jury of the education award surprised this aquatic ecologist just as he was about to leave the campus to be on his way with his students. The lecturer had made it to the shortlist last year as well. At the time, the jury praised his personal style, sobriety and involvement in the well-being of his students.

The last nominee likes sports: he once ended in second place at the winter triathlon in Austria (in the category for 50 y/o and above), participated in the Elfstedentocht in the 80s, plays football, cycles and goes running in his lunch breaks.
