In this week's interview, we talk with Stacy Chandler, FASPS's Middle School head. To read previous interviews, visit FASPS's blog at

  • FASPS: Good morning, Stacy. Thank you for taking a few minutes out of your busy day to chat with us.
  • Stacy: My pleasure. Thank you for the opportunity.
  • FASPS: This is your second year as the head of our Middle School. Tell us briefly what the trajectory was that brought you here.
  • Stacy: First and foremost, I just really want to spend my career in schools that are bilingual or international. I think I became more directed towards bilingual schools because I have two bilingual children, and I'm married to a man who is French. The importance of a bilingual education is something that I believe in personally, and I love using my French as well, being in a workplace where I get to be bilingual. I also really appreciate the balance that the French pedagogical approach brings to the American program. I think the two educational systems create a nice balance for each other, and particularly to FASPS.
