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 have always had a passion for teaching. It was one of those childhood dream jobs that actually worked out. I grew up in Columbia, South Carolina. I went to Columbia International for my B.S. in Teacher Education with a minor in Psychology. I also attended Columbia International University for my graduate studies, earning an M.A. in Teaching in December of 2015. It has been on my heart to travel and work with children. I had no idea that my adventures would begin only a few weeks after graduation. I absolutely love all of the time that I’ve spent with your children during my time at CDIS.
