Why CMIS:

I grew up in an international setting and had a wonderful experience.  I wanted to help provide that experience for others at a school in Thailand where I grew up as  a child.  I liked the international aspect and the Christian focus of CMIS, which is why I chose the school.  I have stayed for 20 years because I love the students and the atmosphere at CMIS, including the freedom to do the things I love and to help the students at the school have a positive educational experience.
