outstanding accomplishments around us!
Message from Director 
I am writing to you from sunny Phuket, where it is currently pouring down rain with the frequent thunder and lightning for added effect!  The QSI Directors conference is underway with all of QSI Headquarters, QSI Directors and additional support personnel. We have had many interesting workshops on the new child protection curriculum that will be rolled out, updates on MSA accreditation, plagiarism, problem solving, taxes in our different countries, personnel changes, learning communities and many more topics. Dr. Thomas Guskey, a professor at the University of Kentucky, and the author of many books is the guest speaker.  

I look forward to being back in Tbilisi next week. I hope all of you were able to connect with the teachers you wanted to see this week. If you were unable to speak to a teacher, please email and make an appointment. They will be happy to meet another time.

See you at the Fall Festival next week!
