International Schools Consortium

International Schools Consortium (iSC) is a nonprofit organization that, since 1986, has offered excellent academic programs to meet the intellectual, physical, and emotional needs of students. iSC has six schools in China — in Chengdu, Qingdao, Wuhan, Wuxi, Tianjin, and Yantai — one school in the UAE, and helps to support various other educational initiatives globally. iSC is a multi-school program, enabling students and teachers to participate in system-wide programs where they can interact with others outside of their immediate school. Students compete in basketball, volleyball and soccer tournaments, as well as music and choral festivals, and Model United Nations (MUN) conventions.

I was born in Taiwan, adopted to my American family, and raised in Okinawa, Japan. I attended both Japanese public and American International Schools. I was very blessed to grow up as a Third Culture Kid where I learned to be flexible and appreciate people from many different cultural backgrounds. I lived in the US for a total of five years ( four for attending university and one for teaching in Texas). Since coming over to China in 2007 as a single teacher at the International School of Wuxi, God has given me a great husband and two wonderful kids.
