Working at an international school is something I have never thought of doing, but it is the best challenge that I have ever taken on. RISS is a school with great opportunities for both students and teachers.

I wanted to challenge myself, to experience what it is like to live and work in a country with a completely different culture and under very basic conditions.

I ask myself the questions: What can I do better to make physics more understandable, what can I do for the students to get the best out of them and surprise them with their own knowledge and capabilities?

RISS is a small but fast growing school with small classes and a tight knit community within a dynamic international city.

My best experiences at the RISS so far were with students, being a witness of how much they can learn and improve with a little bit of help, which makes this job a very gratifying one.
