Welcome to EIM’s Secondary School!

I feel honored to take on the role of Secondary School Principal and IB DP coordinator at EIM, starting in September 2019.

I have greatly appreciated the warm welcome from the administrators, teachers and students that I have met so far. I feel thrilled to invest myself in this growing and dynamic school, right at the heart of Brussels.

Born in Sweden, with Moroccan/Israeli roots and raised in Belgium, I have an international background, and multicultural experiences and exchanges are very important to me.


Having worked as a Diploma Programme teacher for eleven years, and DP coordinator for four years in an nternational school, I have developed a true passion for education, and in particular for the International Baccalaureate Programme. As EIM offers the PYP (Primary Years Programme), MYP (Middle Years Programme) and DP (Diploma Programme), the students have the wonderful opportunity to grow across these excellent academic programmes that are also concerned with developing students as responsible and open-minded individuals.


In my roles at EIM, I will be overseeing the Secondary School programmes and ensuring their optimal implementation through effective teaching and learning, aligned with the IB Standards and Practices. At EIM, academic achievement is a priority. However, student well-being is equally important! We will ensure that the pastoral dimension of our students’ experience is fully considered.


I am very much looking forward to meeting you all.


Best wishes and have a wonderful summer!
