I'm still living a quiet life of retirement in Versoix after working at Collège du Léman as Director of Studies in the Anglo-American Section from 1972 until 1998 officially, and until 2003 on a parttime basis.

Prior to that, I was director of the American School of Stavavger and principal of the Villa St. Jean International School in Fribourg, which followed 10 years at various high schools in the U.S. I greatly enjoyed and valued my experience in international schools, most of which were in Switzerland, and my close involvement with SGIS activities.
