Where did they come from?

VIS is pleased to welcome our new PYP Coordinator, Colin Powell, to the VIS community. Colin is joined by his wife Jenny (our new Turtles teacher) and his two young children. Colin’s  experience in international education is as deep as it is broad. He grew up attending an IB school in Tanzania among a family of educators  and carried the torch into his professional life. Colin has  taught primary school in Malaysia, China and Sri Lanka. 

 Jenny Wong-Powell is originally from Canada and has followed a similar career path throughout Asia. Jenny is also in the midst of completing her PhD. dissertation entitled “An inquiry into the diverse biographical histories with play and its effects on play in early childhood education.” The timing couldn’t be better considering VIS recently won NordPlus funding to support research in the assessment of play with partners at a Russian language kindergarten in Finland.

 Kangaroo Powell and Panda Powell look forward to making friends at VIS and having fun in the snow!
