RENÈE JESCHAUNIG - We are very sad to inform you all that Ms. Jeschaunig - the unforgettable AIS librarian of the 60s, 70s and 80s, has passed away on the 14th of December 2012. You must know that she was far more than just an ordinary librarian: Mrs. Jeschaunig was a holocaust survivor, which resulted in her being personally involved in many classes at AIS (especially the humanities department), she was a popular interview partner for newspaper and book authors and she was a board of directors member at the European Council of International Schools´ Librarians. She will be dearly missed. R.I.P. Mrs. Jeschaunig!
JO STEINBAUER (ESL/English Teacher) - It is with a heavy heart that we share with you the sad news that Ms. Steinbauer has passed away. She was a long time ESL and English teacher who thought her students to believe in themselves as well as to speak up whenever and wherever necessary even if they were not native English speakers. She succeeded in making her class so interesting that many became reading fanatics afterwards. She had an incredible patience and a soothing voice that one seldom experiences. She will truly be missed by the AIS community. Our thoughts and prayers are with her daughter, Kathleen Steinbauer (AIS alumna, Class of ´81) and her family.
CHRIS STRASEN (Director Administrator/High School Guidance Counselor) -The AIS community has lost yet another great person. Ms. Strasen was a former Director Administrator as well as the High School Guidance Counselor from the late 70s till the mid 80s. She was a very kind, helpful and smart lady. She had a calm but a strong personality. Her positive influence on the students she guided throughout her presence at AIS is unforgettable. She will be missed by the AIS community. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family.
GAIL MACMILLAN (High School Principal and former Councelor) - It is with a broken heart that we announce the passing away of our dear Ms. Gail MacMillan. Some of you might also remember her as our High School Councelor from ´96 till ´99. Gail was a smart, trustable, cooperative and fun colleague, friend and team-player. She made things move on: quick decisions taken, projects pushed on, problems solved as soon as possible. She was simply one of the best. R.I.P. Gail - our thoughts and prayers are with your family and friends.
