Change is Coming as SIS Says Goodbye to Great Teachers, Students, and Families.
Living the expatriate lifestyle means embracing change. The variety, excitement, and new experiences that accompany change can keep us growing. Still, it’s hard to say goodbye whether you’re the person leaving or staying.
Among those heading off to new futures this month are our 19 graduates. They are among around 100 other students who will finish their times at SIS this school year.
After next week we’ll say goodbye as well to some great teachers and school leaders. Almost exactly the same number of teachers will leave this year as each of the last two years and again, they will be going to locations around the world to open the next chapters in their lives and careers.
Teachers leaving include: Maureen Hexum, Tracy Rankin from ECLC; Hayley Anderson, James Anderson, Tracy Blair, Lisa Hassel, Bridget Rigg-Anderson, Yeonmi Song, Maria Strate, Evan Waite, Liz Warrick, Adrian Willett and Dustin Yakoubian from ES; Brendon Breen, Martha Langille, Sarah Leonardis, Scott MacDonald, Sonya Nienhuis, David Redmond, Jennifer Tiefel, Keri Troehler and Marianne Yong-MacDonald from Bayside.
Leaving our Leadership Team are Eleni McDermott, ECLC Assistant Principal; Cathy Glick, ES Assistant Principal; and after 8 years teaching and leading the development of our learning program, Assistant Director Treena Casey is moving to Singapore American School.
We wish them, each and every one, the very best.
