“Without inspiration, nothing moves…. We need to set out with a childlike conviction that anything we can imagine, we can manifest.”
Bruce Mau, MC24: Bruce Mau’s 24 principles for designing Massive Change in your life and work.
Born in Germany and growing up in a multicultural environment Cherin holds an MA in Philosophie, Literature, and Psychology from the University in Braunschweig.
Cherin is living by principles of innovative learning and education that honor creativity & cognitive diversity with a focus on a strength-based & holistic development of the critical mind.
Her five daughters all attend(ed) public schools in CFBISD in Texas, where she had the opportunity to gain a deeper knowledge about advanced programs and gifted education. In collaboration with GT teachers, school administrators, and parents, Cherin has made a positive impact in her community in the past twenty years and helped recently maintain, support, and improve GT programs & education in CFBISD.
Cherin became interested in the mission of SENG and a trained facilitator of parent support groups over a decade ago, and obtained her online SENG facilitator certification in 2021 to dive deeper into the SENG parenting model groups on a more international level, with a focus on 2E families.
Cherin is an advocate for students who learn differently & who demonstrate exceptional performance on one or multiple levels. She aims to help promote a more holistic, cross-cultural understanding of development & learning. Her passion is a deeper comprehension of the human condition and working collectively – with professionals, researchers, educators, and parents – towards a whole perception, appreciating & supporting diverse learners. Her life goal is to help promote methods that embrace not only cultural & socio-economic circumstances but acknowledge & develop individual opportunities that allow every learner to thrive.
