Nur Labardini, Support Teacher

Nur Labardini, Support Teacher

Nur was born and raised on the Dutch Antillean island Curaçao. Her family heritage is a convergence of Lebanese and Spanish from her maternal side and Dutch from her paternal side. Curaçao itself is home to an even wider collection of nationalities, religions and cultures. The approximately 130,000 inhabitants of Curaçao from Indonesia, Portugal, India, Holland and Venezuela all conduct business and socialize in harmony. The mixing of these disparate cultures exposed Nur to a rich variety of languages and customs early in life. By nature and necessity, Nur became a master of language in her environment. She speaks English, Spanish, Dutch and the local Antillean language of Papiamento fluently and has proficiency in French.

Nur is a 1992 graduate of The University of Texas at Austin with a B.B.A Degree in Accounting. Following her studies in Austin, she returned home to Curaçao and worked for 7 years in the off-shore tax industry. Nur unexpectedly returned to Austin in 2000 following her marriage and dedicated herself to her family for the next few years.

Nur resumed working in 2007 as a teacher in a local Austin pre-school. She developed a love for nurturing the young minds of the children she taught. With the inspiration of her time at the pre-school behind her, she returned to school to pursue her bilingual teaching certification and has since worked in and continued her development in IB education. Nur is elated to be part of International School of Texas where her love of children, languages and learning are combined.
