VIS welcomes our new 2015-2016 staff members!

New PYP teachers include Marisa Villarreal who has spent the last two years teaching in Shanghai, China.  She will teach grade 3.  Two new grade 2 teachers are joining us. Dee Broussard has spent the last ten years teaching at the International School of Estonia where she was also the PYP Coordinator.  Jody Ubert has worked in international schools in Malaysia and Brazil.  The majority of her experience has been in grade 1 and special education.  Rita Navikienė will teach PYP Lithuanian mother-tongue. She formerly taught at Vilnius Sholom Aleichem gymnasium. The Early Childhood team is excited about the return of Ms. Natalija following the birth of her son Alexander a year ago. 
MYP is also gearing up for exciting changes.  Our Individuals and Societies department will reboot this year with the team of Janis Polis and Kęstutis Balynis. Both teachers have experience teaching in IB DP programmes.  Janis is also interested in Model United Nations and Kęstutis has his eye on starting a debate team at VIS.  Samuel Denis will come on board as our new French teacher. Samuel is originally from Belgium and he has taught at international schools in China and Morocco.   Laima Ring will return this fall having been on maternity leave for two years after giving birth to twins. Finally, our new Lithuanian mother-tongue teacher is Rita Aukštuolė. Rita hails from Klaipeda and she is moving her family to Vilnius this summer in order to be with us.  
Please take the opportunity to make our new team members feel welcome!
