Vice Principal | ESL Science

Mrs. Iseminger ("Mrs. I" to her students) has a very international experience in education, having taught in Cairo, Egypt and Silang, Philippines as well as Spokane and Yakima, Washington, and Bozeman, MT, USA.  She received her education from Eastern Oregon University, Walla Walla University, and Portland State University.  As a teacher, she will do all she can to help her students succeed, even answering late night phone calls and early morning texts.  In addition to her teaching experience, Mrs. I also has had several years of administrative experience.  If you force her into her "administrative role" you may hear her giving you firm instructions in English or even Arabic! 

Mrs. I's hobbies include gardening, reading, moving from one country to another, and anything involving Pathfinders.   Her reading preferences are broad, including such authors as Jan Karon, Shel Silverstein, Charlene Baumbach and Lori Wick.   While she's fond of international travel, she has a hard time telling you her favorite locations, though Pyramids of Egypt; Mt. Sinai; Jerusalem; Ankor Wat; The Waldensian Valleys; Roman Coliseum; Eiffel Tower; Malta, where Paul was shipwrecked; Cyprus; Changmai, Thailand certainly top her list.  She hopes to visit such diverse locations as Finland and Mongolia in the future.

One disadvantage of having lived and worked around the world is that it is hard for Mrs. I to get all her boxes unpacked at one time.  At least when she travels to heaven she won't have to worry about taking the boxes with her.  With her family's many decisions as to where to live and work, it should be no surprise that her favorite verse is  James 1:5-6 "If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind."
