Teacher Postcard: "ISS Sisters" Melanie and Nicole

November 07, 2017

postcard001.jpg Melanie is an ISS alumna and retired School Counselor with a rich history in international education: she attended an international school in Manila as a child, became a counselor in Japan and Indonesia, and raised her children abroad as well. We're grateful ISS got to be part of her international journey! Melanie reached out to us a few months ago, offering to share about ISS at presentation she was giving for the Oklahoma School Counseling Association about teaching/counseling overseas.

When Melanie was in Oklahoma for the presentation this past Thursday, she found a kindred spirit in the audience: Nicole, who had worked overseas at UNIS Hanoi (Vietnam) after finding her job via ISS! They called themselves the "ISS sisters" and came together after the presentation to send us this fun photo. We love how international education spans the world, yet also makes it a little smaller. Here's to the joy of two globe-trotting ISS alumni finding each other in Oklahoma!
