Marieta Rosendaal is a teacher-researcher at the Excellence and Innovation in Education lectureship.


“Children do not care how much you know, until they know how much you care.” -Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919)


Marieta studied Pedagogical Sciences and Educational Sciences at Radboud University in Nijmegen and delved further into learning problems. For more depth and an extra challenge during her studies, she also studied at the University of Oulu and the University of Lapland in Finland.

After various internships at home and abroad, she became a teacher of Pedagogy at HZ University of Applied Sciences. Here she teaches various courses to Pedagogy students, guides students in their graduation research and helps develop the curriculum.

Marieta cares about the well-being of children and is convinced that a child can learn if he feels good about himself. This is reflected in the studies she is involved in as a teacher-researcher. For example, for a complementary study into Collaborative Investigative Working in Regional Networks (NRO), she is following a study into language development and the prevention of low literacy in Rotterdam-South. She is also project leader of a study into the added value of pedagogues in the classroom, in which pedagogues are introduced into primary school teams to meet the development needs of all students through interdisciplinary collaboration.
