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.

Having spent a good portion of my youth on a farm in the state of Wisconsin, I developed a love of gardening, baseball, and bratwursts (not necessarily in that order). I put myself through the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, graduating with a B.A. in Elementary Education. I have worked in China since 2001. Twelve of the last 14 years have been spent at SYIS, both as an administrator and elementary school teacher. In 2009, I married my beautiful wife Diana. We have three very energetic children.
