    This is Vida Juozaitis here joining your wiki. I thought I would start connecting before I officially begin my new position at the new International School of Vietnam in August. It is reassuring to know you are all there for support.
    Born and educated in Canada, I attended the University of Toronto where I majored in English Literature. I began my teaching career at the high school level teaching English, Film and Dramatic Arts in Toronto, my home town. Mid career I began training as a teacher-librarian and in 2007, I was granted a Master of Education in Teacher-Librarianship from the University of Alberta. My teaching spans all grade levels from nursery to grade 12 and at international schools in Barcelona, Beijing and London. I look forward to working in the new International School of Vietnam's Library and Media Resource Centre with all its opportunities and challenges.

    Hi there. I'm Jonathan Guy and I am the new librarian at the ABC International School in HCMC. I'm very excited to be here! I don't profess, in any way, to be a teacher but I am learning fast. I have 20 years post-qualification library experience and started off working at the British Library of Political and Economic Science in London, before working at the Institute of Commonwealth Studies and then in further education at Greenwich Community College. For the last 12 years I have worked in schools, firstly in deepest East London at Cumberland School and then in the wilds of Somerset at Stanchester Academy. Having started in universities I'm delighted to find myself progressing to running a KS1 and nursey library here in HCMC ... and the pupils are making far more sense as well. In my spare time I enjoy listening to music, particularly obscure mid-western American guitar sounds relating back to The Byrds and Neil Young; I love hiking and cycling; I love finding butterflies; and I collect banana stickers. I apologise, in advance, for all these things. Oh, and whilst it's pretty difficult to choose a favourite teenage read ... A Gathering Light by Jennifer Donnelly is always there or thereabouts. But that might have changed by next week. I'll keep you posted.

    Thanks,
    {RhondaMorrissette.JPG} Greetings - I'm Rhonda Morrissette. I joined the staff at Renaissance International School Saigon in August 2013 as Head Librarian serving early years - Year 13. This is my first international school and first time in Asia - so I'm absolutely thrilled to learn about vietlibs and appreciate the support and leadership shown by you - especially Alan and Angela! I have taught for 25 years in Winnipeg, Canada including all grades, several years as a technology support teacher, and the past 9 years as a teacher librarian (N-6 and adult ed). I graduated in 2011 with my Masters in Teacher Librarianship from the University of Alberta. I met several teacher librarians working in International Schools through my course of study and that's why I decided to apply.
    My husband Vern and I have raised two daughters who are still in university in Toronto. He's semi-retired, and we're both loving every minute of our time here so far.

    Hi, my name is Jaye Shaer, and I am the new high school librarian at the American International School, HCMC. I moved here with my 9-year-old daughter, Quinn, from Bonner Springs (near Kansas City), Kansas. I spent the last four years as a middle school librarian. Before that I taught middle school and high school English. My only other experience living abroad was teaching ESL in Kazakhstan with the Peace Corps from 1993-95. We live at Sky Garden 3 in Phu My Hung and are settling in comfortably to life in HCMC. I'm sure there is more to tell about myself, but that's the basics.
    {moi.png} Hi, I am Diane DePauw, the new elementary teacher-librarian at SSIS (South Saigon International School). I had taught in Canada for 15 years before going overseas. Since then, the exciting international path has led me to England, Venezuela, Tanzania and Thailand. I have been back in Canada for 2 years now and I am excited about returning to Vietnam. I was in UNIS Hanoi about 12 years ago and fell in love with this extraordinary country. I have taught at all grade levels starting as a French teacher, to Librarian to technology teacher.

    I spend my spare time gardening, reading, learning new technologies, good movies exploring nature and markets.

    Hello all. My name is Alan Jacques. I'm Head Librarian for BIS, Vietnam.
    I'm a New Zealander by origin but have now spent more than half my life beyond its borders. I am married to a very confusing lady named Briar, and together we have an extremely confusing child named Xavier. I have a background in English, History, & Health Science - yes that's a confusing mix, it took me a while to realise that I like a little of a lot of things, and thus should be a librarian.
