Here is a personal note from Lisa:

I am so excited to join the community at The International School! What attracted me to TIS is that they recognize the importance of teaching language with culture, for language and culture are intertwined; you cannot have one without the other. The enthusiasm and commitment of the staff to inspire children to be global citizens further convinced me that this community was one I wanted to be a part of, and I look forward to contributing to such a comprehensive, enriching learning environment.

I recently moved to Portland with my partner and two cats and am having fun exploring all the wonderful hiking trails, parks, museums and restaurants that are plentiful here. I enjoy arts and crafts to explore my creativity and am trying my hand at a vegetable and herb garden in my backyard. I look forward to meeting everyone at TIS in the upcoming school year! 

Welcome, Lisa!
