After teaching in Pennsylvania for seven years and completing the requirements for earning our Masters’ Degrees, we arrived at Rift Valley Academy in July of 1997 as a family of three for a three-year assignment. Those three years quickly stretched to four; and as a family of five, we returned to the US in 2001 for a year of home assignment. Recognizing our love for teaching and mentoring MKs, we returned home to Kenya. Throughout the years as our own children have grown, we have served in a variety of roles including teachers, dorm parents, and class sponsors. Most recently, Brian has taught two classes of AP Calculus and served as the math department chair. He has also been the coordinator for curriculum development, school accreditation, and RVA’s interim program. Missy has served in the role of Admissions Director guiding families through the application process and helping them prepare for their child’s transition to RVA. Together, we have been staff sponsors for the classes of 2013 and 2019. The last of our three children recently graduated from RVA and we are currently on a one-year home assignment back in our home state of Pennsylvania.
