This is my 42nd year as an educator and my second as your Principal. The opportunity to work internationally – first in Vietnam and now in Thailand –  has been unbelievably rewarding both personally and professionally.  I am inspired each day by students who are eager to learn from teachers who are passionate about “doing what is best for kids.” I am equally encouraged by parents who are supportive of the learning environment we have developed at NIS and our plans for the future. In all my early years as a student at Whittier College and Cal-State University, Fullerton, I never imagined a career that would be so fulfilling.
