Leaders in Academic Excellence
"This is my second year as the Secondary Instrumental Music Director. The AOSR ensembles have performed at the US Embassy Christmas Tree Lighting, basketball games, Halloween parades, school assemblies, recitals, graduations, and holiday and spring concerts. The AOSR community has been very supportive of the Instrumental Music Program and has purchased many new instruments and sheet music for our program. I have immersed myself in the whole of the AOSR community; as a HS Tennis Coach, ASA Elementary Tennis Program Instructor, and Chess Club Advisor. I am so thankful to be a teacher and community member at AOSR in beautiful Rome."
"When I joined AOSR I felt as though I had been granted the opportunity of a lifetime. AOSR values the members and their contributions to the well-being and growth of the students. What has made my time here so thrilling and rewarding has been learning alongside my students and colleagues. AOSR students have an unparalleled drive to learn, grow, and take risks. This determination and energy is contagious and makes coming to work every day truly enjoyable. I feel so lucky to be a part of this community."
"I currently teach Grade 2 at AOSR. This is my first year in Rome as well as my first year of living and teaching internationally. I love being at AOSR because of the diverse and globally minded community of students and teachers. There are also many opportunities here for students to pursue and explore their passions and interests. My students walk into school everyday with a positive attitude and excitement to learn and grow."
