SAS Math Excellence Award

Each teacher at the Singapore American School is allowed to award two exceptional students at the end of each year. Maria was surprised and honored when she was recognized by her math teacher!



This has been one heck of a year, a lot of ups and downs, adjusting to a new school, a new culture, a new country. Trent and I couldn’t be more proud of our beautiful daughter! As I write this post, Maria is taking a final, finishing up her freshman year. She is already thinking about colleges, (leaning towards Duke) , and while I am so excited for her and her future, I am sick to my stomach when I think about her leaving. I will continue to treasure each and every second that I have with my amazing Maria!!



English class

Maria loves her english class. It’s her favorite subject, her favorite class. And it shows consistently in her work. She has a terrific teacher this year, who totally appreciates her effort. Here are some snip-its from him on some of her work.




And of course, you cannot help but love anyone who sings to Maria, as we all have done throughout the years. This teacher even goes so far to sing to her in his comments!! Love that!


Cales IT Media video


My creative Cale made this video for his IT Media class at the Singapore American School.   I was super impressed when I watched this!!!  Here’s what he wrote:

“After a long couple months, I have finally completed this 5 minute long video. It is about a bank robber… but will have to find out the rest… I did this project at SAS in IT Media. Enjoy!”
