Having enjoyed teaching in various regions of Asia already, Vietnam was a huge draw due to its vibrancy, fabulous people and great weather. The decision to look towards BIS as a long term teaching base was an even easier one. At BIS there are children who are eager to learn, and the encouragement from the management to allow teachers to develop their pupils beyond mere classroom competency - to become world citizens - is enlightening. As a parent, this is where I want my children to learn!
