Singapore Grade Five Teacher (Current Employee) – Singapore – June 18, 2018
Loved the school in every way. Well resourced, polite,thoughtful,inquisitive students, supportive colleagues. Would highly recommend the school as a place to work and to send students. I've worked in over six schools as a teacher both in the United States and internationally; this is by far the best school I've seen.

Secretary to the Deputy Principal Middle School (Former Employee) – Singapore – June 14, 2016
I found out that policies and procedures were in place and were strictly adhered to. This made daily work quite easy and efficient. Co workers were helpful too but since most of them had been there for a long time, they could be inflexible about changes. Hardest part of the job was to get somethig approved through HR. Even if your supervisor approves of something, you would still have to go through 3-4 stages for approval. Most enjoyable part was, when admin staff was appreciated and was invited to parties, Christmas events, given gifts and recognized. This attitude wasn't just meant for teachers.
I served as the Middle School Deputy Principal of Singpaore American School
Principal - Grades (Former Employee) – Singapore, S00 – April 1, 2014
I assisted the Middle School Principal in managing the middle school of one of the most highly successful and respected international schools in the world, the Singapore American School. The middle school had an enrollment of 780 students, with a total school enrollment of nearly 4,000 students at the school, one of the largest international schools in the world. We had 64 faculty and staff in the middle school and I directly supervised half of them, but also shared in the budget and planning of the school.
Sinparore is a very easy city to live in, and travel throughout Asia was especially enjoyable, as was working with the primarliy American student body.
My work week consisted of typically 80 hours a week, with 12 hour days, working every Saturday to stay ahead of the work demands.
