Here is a personal note from Brandy:
Aside from my many years in emergency medicine/clinical work, I am an avid world traveler and rescue/rehabilitate animals in my free time. I enjoy playing classical guitar, learning new languages and am an avid reader. You will frequently catch me reading anything from peer-reviewed science journals, electrical code manuals, news, language books, to theater skits. I have a non-stop craving for knowledge and love to teach. I also taught CPR for many years in southern California and love to live an active lifestyle either running, camping, or out on the water on my boat.
The International School is an amazing school as it combines an inspiring mission and all encompassing way of learning. I am very excited to work with such a well cultured society coupled with a teaching environment. The sound of teachers and students speaking different languages throughout the day is music to my ears! I am proud to be the newest member of the TIS team!
