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 grew up in the Dallas, Texas, area for the majority of my life, but then moved to Oklahoma and attended Oklahoma Baptist University in Shawnee, OK. My desire was to become a teacher. I met my husband during college and we married as soon as I graduated. We then spent the next 12 years in Oklahoma City, OK. I taught middle school and high school math, English and Spanish, in Norman, OK for a few years before having children. I then taught again after my children started school in a public school in Oklahoma City. In 2008 my family moved to China where we have been living ever since.
