I live in a polder. A polder is a lake or part of the sea with dykes around it and no water in it. This lake was called [Wieringermeer] that is Lake of Wieringen, [Wieringen] being an island.


I like playing the bass clarinet.

My Reflection

A teacher after all is a person deputized by the rest of us to explain to the young what sort of world they are living in, and to defend, if possible, the part their elders are playing in it.

which metadata should we add to our work?

Using existing pages

I came across the page learning and this page is used in one course. (28 november 2009) I would like to change this page to make it fit in another course. Maybe here is a problem ? I could add my stuff to this page in order to make it also part of the course I want to make. But that will make this page more complicated for users. Is that a problem?
