    Hello SCIS community! My wife, our three-year-old son, Jack Zando, and our 16-year-old Chihuahua, Alfred Sigfred Wilfred, have come from Seoul, South Korea where we taught at an international school for three years. Prior to Seoul, we lived and worked (and climbed, surfed and biked!) in New Zealand, the U.K., and the U.S. (I’m from Asheville, North Carolina). We decided it was high time to experience another East Asian mega city and are excited about being part of such a positive school community. I’m particularly excited about working in the middle school humanities department. Learning about humans, and how and why we’re here, is a passion of mine. Working in an international setting as a humanities teacher is amazing as so many perspectives and opinions are on display. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Asheville with a degree in history and education, and I am just about finished with my masters’ degree in educational leadership from the University of Northern Iowa. The human condition is a fascinating one and I look forward to learning alongside all of you!
