As a teacher, you have to be able to empathize with your students constantly. I believe I can do this very well and that this trait helps me to be a good user experience designer. After all, being a good user experience designer comes down to be able to empathize with your users.


From 2013 to 2019 I worked as an IT teacher at the high school Maaswaal College in Wijchen (The Netherlands). The students were between 14 and 18 years old.

I taught the following courses:

  • Building a website with HTML5 & CSS3
  • Databases management with SQL
  • Basic programming with Java
  • Human-computer interaction
  • Operating systems & Linux
  • Object-orientated programming with Java
  • Creating a dynamic website with PHP
  • Networking & the internet
  • Programming with JavaScript
