about Michel Linthorst
I've been working as a teacher and trainer in education for over 25 years. I started as a primary school teacher, then became drama teacher.
After 8 years I started working at a school for children who had to leave their country of origin because of war or poverty.
I developed the life skills course, especially for children who struggled in life. But it turned out to be very effective for other children and for the personal and professional development of teachers, parents and adults in general as well. After another 8 years I started working at a special needsschool with pupils with autisme, severe psychological problems, behaviarol, concentration and motivational problems, children with adhd, add, downsyndrom ect.
I have been a trainer in Life Skills for over 10 years in different countries for schoolteams, NGO's and companies.
I am an author of a book about 7 Life Skills, childrens books and theatrical plays. I developed games. I am artist and did several art projects.
Michel wrote and directed several play's like 'Schadow child'
