Some background

I’ve been teaching overseas since 1989. All of  that time, except for four years in Pakistan, has been spent in Indonesia. I specialize in Middle School math and technology, but I also teach social studies. I was trained originally to be an anthropologist – all of my degrees are in anthropology.



  1. Hello,

    My name is Meliana Salim. I represent Green School at the Kul-Kul Campus (formerly The Kul-Kul School) as the Marketing & PR Manager. I came a cross a listing of our school on your website and was wondering if you had the chance to visit our campus. If not, we would love to have you come for a tour at your earliest convenience.

    We are delighted to have the chance to share our vision of innovative education for the 21st century. Green School combines the rigors of mainstream education with the teaching methods of multiple intelligences as well as a dedication to ecological and cultural sustainability. Our goal is simple: to cultivate in our students a deep love of learning and the development of values that will allow them to become the leaders of their generation.

    Your blogs are very impressive; thoroughly researched and incredibly informative. Please give me a call if you’d like to arrange a meeting.

    Thank you.

    Yours truly,

  2. Thanks very much Meliana. I’ll be back in Bali next month. If I have a chance to get down to Ubud, I’ll give you a call. I’d love to see the school. Thanks for the comments.

  3. Thank you for the informative blog on Lahore American School. It was helpful as I have just accepted a teaching position there and was researching online.

  4. Good luck Shazia and thanks for the comments. Say hello to Shaista in the main office.

  5. Hi! My name is George Christos. I am currently a teacher at Tinian Jr. Sr. High School in the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas. I am halfway through a two year contract and am starting to consider my future career options. I visited Bali for the first time this past Christmas and was immediately enamoured of the culture, the people, and the environment. I am returning in late March to learn more about Bali and to hopefully visit a school or two. I have attempted to contact one international school but received no reply from my e-mail. I was able to reach someone by phone, but the connection from here was so bad that neither of us could understand at all what the other was saying. I have very much enjoyed reading your articles on your website and was hoping you might have some advice for me on my upcoming visit and possible ways of contacting some of the schools before I arrive.

    P.S. This is a great blog! Thanks for all the information!

  6. Hi George,

    Thanks for the comments.

    You don’t mention which school you are attempting to contact, but I would try the email again if you don’t receive a reply after a week or so. You should remember that directors and principals of international schools are very busy, especially at this time of the year with recruiting going on. The person that you are trying to contact may be out recruiting.

    We’ve been having some problems with communications over the past few weeks so you might want to try the phone again.

    I’ll be at home in Singaraja during the end of March. If you make it up north drop in and visit.

    Best of luck and regards,


  7. Thanks! Living here on Tinian I understand very well about communication problems. I’ll try to make it up your way.

  8. I would like to let the blog participants know that we are in the process of planning for an international school development in Singapore.
