In this new podcast series, I plan to do short interviews with educational leaders from around the world to discuss with them how the current COVID-19 crisis has impacted them both personally and professionally. We will explore ways that they are learning to cope with the adversity and hardship, what is keeping them inspired, and what they are learning about themselves. It brings me great pleasure to have Michelle Remington on the show to share her learning. Hope you have a listen.
Dr. Michelle Remington began her career teaching internationally in 1996 as a grade 6 classroom teacher on the island of Saipan. In 1998 she and her husband Jesse, also an international teacher, moved to Venezuela where they spent the next eight years. During this time Michelle taught high school English, earned her Ph.D. in Educational Leadership, and later moved into administration. In 2006 Michelle, Jesse and their two young children made the move from Venezuela to the UAE where they lived until June 2019. Michelle worked as an administrator both at the American Community School of Abu Dhabi and the American School of Dubai.
Michelle is joined at The KAUST School by her husband and three children who are all enrolled in the KAUST School. Michelle enjoys traveling, reading, and participating in almost all sports including volleyball, tennis, basketball, pilates, and yoga. The family home is in Bigfork, Montana in the United States where they enjoy camping, waterskiing, kayaking, and hiking each summer.
