After four years spent teaching in a UK Primary school I married and moved to Geneva in 1967 with a one year contract to work at the Lycée des Nations and was fortunate to have Milton Toubkin as Head for the first five years. (He later co-founded Southbank school in London). From 1972 - 76 I was Assistant Primary Principal. In 1975 we became a part of Ecolint and the Lycée's name eventually would disappear. It was during the late 60's and early 70's that I assisted in the early years of SGIS, and subsequently on the committee in the 80's and 90's.

Now I am retired and live near Zurich after just over thirty years spent working at the InterCommunity School in Zumikon. In retirement I enjoy my principal hobby of woodworking, and am happy to help out friends when requested.

My main reason for remaining in Switzerland for so long was the constant challenges of working with students from so many national systems. From time to time I have been contacted by a variety of former students and have been fascinated by their differing career paths and heartened by their positive comments of time spent in our schools.
