Steve is fortunate to have had the opportunity to work in a number of schools, in a variety of roles, and across different grade levels. He brings a wealth of international experience to his new position, having held roles in Berlin, Hong Kong, and Australia.
No stranger to the Rhein-Ruhr region, Steve previously worked at ISD for seven years, from 2007 to 2010, and again from 2013 to 2016. Düsseldorf is where both his children (now 12 and 10 years old) were born.
Prior to his re-appointment to ISD, Steve spent the past four years working as K-12 Director of Teaching and Learning at the Friends’ School in Hobart, Australia.
In addition to holding a Bachelor of Business, a Diploma of Teaching, and a Masters’ in Educational Leadership, Steve has also completed the Principals’ Training Center qualification.
Steve is passionate about pedagogy that enables children to have agency over their learning. He enjoys working in collaborative environments that value a diverse range of perspectives.
We are excited to welcome Steve and his family back to ISD, re-establishing the family’s strong connections to the school and to ISD community life.
