The Tempest, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Back to the 80s, All in the Timing, and Arsenic and Old Lace. What do these plays have in common? Well, they were all directed and produced by Ms. Georgia Crinis, who has been a drama teacher at ASW for 5 years. Next year, however, she will be joining the Stamford American International School (SAIS) community in Singapore, which is located in Southeast Asia.
Moving from a school with around 1000 students to a much larger one with over 3,000 students is a big change for Ms. Crinis and slightly nerve wracking.
However, Ms. Crinis is ready for the change. “I am excited to be teaching in a large drama department which includes 8 drama teachers,” she said. “I am looking forward to teaching Middle School students again.”
One of the many things Ms. Crinis appreciates about Poland is “the wonderful travel and adventure opportunities there are to explore whilst living here, such as visiting Spain many times.”
However, she will not be disappointed in Singapore, since she will be able to experience a “multicultural city which offers a diverse range of cultural activities and different religious temples.”
The geography will also allow her to see friends and family from her home country more often: “I am also excited because I will be close to my home in Australia and probably have more visitors than I’ve had whilst living in Poland.”
Although she is looking forward to her new adventure in Singapore, she will never forget her experience here, in ASW. “I will miss working with my students, working with incredible colleagues in the Arts Dept and beyond,” said Ms. Crinis. “And being part of a community of great friends. ASW is a very special community of people and it’s been my life for five years so I know I’ll miss it a lot.”
