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 was born and raised in Michigan where I developed a love for the outdoors and spending time with my wonderful family! I am one of the youngest of many cousins. After high school, I went to Southeastern University in Florida where I earned my B.A. in English and Intercultural Studies. While I was in Florida, I taught English in the local community and enjoyed spending time learning about new cultures. During college, I spent time studying and teaching English in Europe, which further grew my love for teaching (and traveling!). After I graduated, I spent a few months teaching ELL courses at a local high school before moving to China to join the wonderful community and team at CDIS. I enjoy teaching and learning about new cultures and I am excited to be part of CDIS!
