What a small world

Setting things up for the classroom the other day, my principal stopped by with a high school teacher (known here as “Speck”). He has been at JIS for many years, and was the driving force in getting the MS science building (at which I am teaching) all revamped and remodeled.

When I introduced myself, he paused for a minute and then responded, “I taught some kids named ‘Stutz’ a few years ago at my last school before JIS. Their names were Karla and Rob.” It turns out that he had been my sister and brother’s teacher, in Amman, Jordan, twenty-three years ago. He’s been here in Jakarta since, and he still remembered them by name!

When we got the schedules last night, guess who was listed as Alea’s science teacher this year…

  2. Cool! In my math department, I was greeted by a woman I knew from CEESA Math Counts back in the late 1990’s! She’s great fun and someone I will be learning a lot from this year! She was excited to have me join too. It is crazy how small the world is. On new student orientation day we also met a boy who was in my tiger scouts den with Alex in K, and grades 1 to 3. Pretty cool
