Dear LIS Families, It is my pleasure and honor to introduce myself as Primary School Principal of Leipzig International School. I am so proud and excited to join your school community and to support our students, families, and teaching teams.
I spent the last 10 years at the German International School in Portland, Oregon, where I worked with families and staff from around the world in my capacity as Grade School Director. In my previous career, I worked in Human Resources for IBM and Microsoft for global teams in marketing, sales, and consulting in Germany and the US. As the Primary School Principal, I am dedicated to continuing our students’ successes and will strive to build positive relationships that will allow our school community to continue to grow.
Like you, I am a parent as well. My husband Ralph and I have been married for twenty-three years, and we have two, now almost grown, children. Isabella just graduated from Cal Poly in California and moved to San Francisco to start her first job at a biomedical engineering company. Ben started college at Universität Freiburg this semester and studies Sustainable Energies. Both of them grew up bilingual, and I am so excited to see the opportunities this provides to children at LIS as well.
I view education as a process of lifelong learning and myself as a leader of learners. I know I will continue to learn much about our program here at Leipzig International School in the coming months and in the years to come and am excited to bring my experience, my openness to learn, and my child-centered approach to support our students to our community. Because the relationships between families and the school are vital for the success of our students and our community, I encourage you to continue to get involved. I am impressed by the openness and professionalism of everybody I met at LIS and am committed to continuing to explore new ideas to meet the needs of our students.
Together we will continue to move our students through a rich learning environment guided with love and support toward a bright and international-minded future.
I look forward to the collaboration and support we will be able to give each other. Please know that my door is always open to you and I welcome your conversation and input.
I can’t wait to meet you!
Sincerely yours, Stefanie Amann
