Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey there! My name is Bart.
I'm a playful, broadly interested and slightly idealistic physics
teacher with a terrible sense of humor.
Besides that I just started a one person business for training
teachers, so that is both exciting and slightly terrifying.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Usually I can be found in one of two states: either I'm exuberant
and brimming with energy. I want to awesomize the world and make it
a better place for everyone, right now. Or I'm lazy/tired, wanting
to read, watch youtube vids, hang out with friends and play
I teach physics to high school students. It's fun! I love my job. I
get a lot of satisfaction out of designing and giving a lesson
which really sticks with the students. And of course to hear about
the endless perils of high school life from my students. Also, I'm
busy experimenting with gamification in my classes.
When not working I like to play games (board and computer), dance
salsa (or ballroom, or latin, or just wildly), read voraciously,
cycle to work, watch movies meant for other age categories than
mine, dress up as silly characters (see my photos), and to hike
through the mountains. Also, I tried my hand at surfing this
summer, and it was really awesome.
Finally, I tend to sing/whistle/dance all through the day, much to
the chagrin of moody people everywhere.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being enthusiastic! And conveying that enthousiasm to others! And
using too many exclamation marks!
Also, I win more games than I'm supposed to.
Finally, I know a little about a lot of things. I finished three
masters (Applied Physics, Management of Technology and Education).
Watching and reading a lot of non-fiction also helps.
