Rinke Huisman

Rinke is co-founder of Habits of Mind Netherlands. Rinke was originally a teacher and worked in the special primary school The Noordwijkse School. In 2008, the management of the school has been on a study trip to America for inspiration and ideas. They visited several schools, including the Mission Hill K-8 School in Boston. There they first met the Habits of Mind. They brought some ideas back to the Netherlands and Rinke was very intrigued by the HoM. Convinced of the concept, Rinke joined in 2014 IHOM to internalize the habits of mind, with success. Rinke still supports The Noordwijkse School with mastering the Habits of Mind and the implementation of the HoM in the curriculum. Together with Tom Witjes, Rinke has embraced the goal of spreading the word of HoM in the Netherlands by writing articles, giving keynotes and workshops, using twitter/facebook and even by the launch of their own website: www.habitsofmind.nl Rinke can be reached at: info@habitsofmind.nl
