I am currently the Middle School Principal at Shanghai Community International School in Shanghai, China. I arrived in July of 2010 after 7 wonderful years in Jakarta, at Jakarta International School, and I’ve been an International School Teacher/Administrator for over a decade.
I began two years ago sending my thoughts (Musings) out to the Upper School faculty in an attempt to share my vision, and to open up the lines of communication. They’ve become somewhat of an expectation over the last couple of years, and it’s fair to say that they’ve morphed into opportunities for me to address issues, share my educational fairytale, and to celebrate accomplishments with the surrounding school community.
I eventually decided to put them into a Blog format, and share them with other teachers and administrators around the world who I know and respect. Essentially, the Musings are my attempt to stay current, as well a forum to gain valuable feedback on how to turn a school from good to great. It’s an on-going process
