What I am excited about this week... 1. ISAZ Teachers Teaching Teachers Conference! AISL hosted the Independent Schools' Association of Zambia (ISAZ) conference on February 11 and it was a great success. Open to all ISAZ schools, this conference is the premier professional development experience of the year for independent schools in Zambia. I am honored to report that AISL teachers ran about two-thirds of the workshops on offer. These workshops are a great opportunity for AISL to show leadership in Zambia and give back to the community. Many thanks to the large volunteer planning team made up of teachers, administrators, and support staff from AISL, LICS, ISL, and Baobab. Many thanks also to all our AISL teacher-presenters and for our administrative and support staff who ensured that the event ran very smoothly.

What I am excited about this week... | 1. ISSEA! Congratulations to the scholar-athletes who participated in last week's ISSEA Rugby, Swimming, and Basketball tournaments. What a fun weekend! Many thanks to everyone who contributed to these events. From support staff to host families to coaches to the PTA, we could not participate in ISSEA without significant support from the entire community. Special thanks to Mark Hoffman, Christine Moono, Bupe Mulenga, and Chulu Chansa for ensuring that the ISSEA Rugby tournament we hosted went particularly smoothly.

Happy New Year and Welcome Back | Happy New Year! I hope that you enjoyed the festive season and that your 2017 is off to a great start. Monday's professional development day provided a great opportunity for faculty teams to collaborate on curriculum development and get ready for the students' arrival on Tuesday. We are thrilled to welcome four new families to AISL. Please look for opportunities to welcome them and to help them settle into Lusaka and AISL.

Have a Great Holiday! | I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season and are able to get away for some fun with friends and family. Thank you so much for all the support that you have given to the school. We have had a great first semester and have much more in store for the next one. Our staff members regularly go above and beyond to support our children so please remember to thank at least one of them before we break up for the holiday.

What I am excited about this week... | 1. Gratitude! As I look back on the last five months in my new job, there have been many highlights. Ones that really stands out has been the pleasure of working with the AISL team. It is such an honor to work with so many talented and dedicated professionals. Teaching is an extraordinarily demanding and difficult job. I am humbled by the tireless dedication of our faculty and staff as they teach, guide, coach, stretch, and inspire their young charges in class, after school, at evening events, and on so many local and international trips. As the holiday season approaches and we wrap up the first half of the year, please take the time to thank at least one of these people who goes above and beyond to support our students.
