After a year of studying at SNA, I have seen great improvements in my child as she has became more independent and more open to communicate. Even I was surprised as to how much she has changed in just 2 semester studying at SNA. From a shy, less open-minded 7 grader to a determined girl that would express her desire to study abroad. Her critical thinking and independence have improved drastically.
Right on the first day entering into the International Schools of North America (2010) to the present – (2020), all of the students have started to experience their prime time which is full of beautiful and innocent memories with the school.
Twelve years of devoting Minh Ngoc’s efforts to study, she has become completely different up to now, since she was a shy and passive child: she is very active, open-minded, frank, and responsible to herself and her family. In the events of the years, Ngoc always comes up with great new ideas that are useful for bringing peace, joy, and happiness for her own family and the society. From now on, all precious memories, broad-minded knowledge, and life skills learned from Teachers will forever stay in their minds to continue preparing for a new turning point to make the future dream come true.
The maturity of forming personality, morality, steadfast knowledge of children today is considered as a gift for Grandparents, Parents, and Teachers to repay as little reward for all the great people.
We would like to express our deep gratitude to our grandparents, all the members of my family, and teachers, all the employees of SNA. Always take care of the students in the best ways. Best wishes to everyone!
I have collaborated and worked at SNA for two years. In recent years, I have found that SNA is a potential educational environment, containing many positive values for the development of my teaching capacity. SNA has helped me to have good colleagues, good friends and especially active and eager students. This makes me feel that SNA is like a family and every day going to school gives me a lot of emotions.
Hi! My name is Krysta Sullivan and I am a PYP classroom teacher here at SNA. I have taught 1st grade for 2 years and will be teaching 3rd grade this coming year. In my time here I have made many memories, gained experiences, and have been presented with multiple opportunities to grow professionally and personally. Between professional developments made available in and out of school and collaborating with other staff in problem solving and the building of our IB curriculum, SNA has become a place of work that both challenges me and supports me in my growth. I have been able to explore a range of teaching techniques such as flexible seating and MakerSpace with the resources made available and the support SNA administration and staff as well as had opportunities to share my own ideas and knowledge with other teachers through our in school professional developments.
Though I am a primary teacher, I have collaborated with students and teachers of all grade levels. We have built a community within SNA and are continuing to build it through our whole school activities such as our festivals, cultural events, and teacher and students sports days, and starting this year our House System which was another new concept presented by the teachers that SNA was happily ready to accept as a way to create an inclusive school environment. Leadership roles in these events are constantly available for student and staff to further develop themselves and build connections with each other. We have been able to achieve the concept from our parent company NHG of “One team One dream” at SNA as we all learn and grow together as we work towards our goals and dreams.
