Where are you from?
I was born and brought up on the London/Surrey borders, close to our school. Since then, I have been fortunate to work in a number of international environments in universities and schools during my career. I am now very happy to be working in my home county, and so close to the best city in the world. 

Why TASIS England? 
TASIS England provides me with the opportunity to work in a truly international environment, and with faculty and staff who are passionate in their teaching and in the ways they help our students from around the world to learn and fulfil their potential. I'm privileged to lead the team who looks after our students and families on their journeys to TASIS, and to be part of a Senior Leadership Team that is committed to providing an excellent experience for all those in our school community.

Senior Associate Director of Admissions and Enrollment Management

Where are you from?
I was lucky enough to grow up on an active apple farm in central Massachusetts while spending time enjoying summers in Maine and winters skiing in New Hampshire. I have also taught and lived in Connecticut and New York before moving to England.

Why TASIS England?
In 2001, I came to TASIS The American International School in England to join the second grade team. When I first spoke with people at TASIS I felt so comfortable and had that “gut” feeling that it was the right place for me professionally. Once I stepped onto the campus, exhausted after flying all night, I knew it was a place I wanted to be. As an educator, witnessing the joy of learning that was evident in the classrooms was fantastic and hearing the positive feelings amongst the teachers, parents and staff made it even more convincing that I should make the move to England.

Where are you from?
I was born in Essex and attended boarding school in London, which was a fantastic experience. I relished the rich culture of learning, friendship, arts, and sports and believe it was ideal preparation for the challenges and responsibilities of adult life.

Why TASIS England? 
There is so much to love about TASIS! It is a truly international school with a nurturing environment and a really strong sense of community. Students are challenged, supported, and encouraged to be confident, independent, open-minded, and compassionate individuals. TASIS has a real commitment to ensuring each student achieves their full potential. I’m very proud to be part of the team here and to represent the School both in the UK and overseas. 

               

THERESE BAGSIT

  Senior Associate Director of Student Recruitment and Admissions

Where are you from?
I am a native Angeleno - born in Los Angeles, California - and I've resided there my entire life. My parents are from the Philippines, and because they instilled their love of travel in me at a young age, I've been able to travel to five continents even though I've only ever lived in L.A. When people ask me what my favorite place in the world is, I say that London is my second choice - with my favorite place being on the couch next to my rescue dog.

Why TASIS England? 
TASIS England fosters a supportive and nurturing environment for our international community of students and families, and faculty and staff to thrive! I am an advocate for students and learners (of all ages) to study, work, and live outside of their home countries, so the School's mission aligns with my own professional and personal philosophy. Our location just outside of London is also a true advantage as it provides a global gateway for our students to engage with an ever-changing world. I look forward to connecting with families throughout their school search because TASIS England is truly distinctive.

Where are you from?
I was born and raised locally and have always worked in the Surrey area. I have enjoyed travelling to far-off lands and have plans for many more trips in my future.

Why TASIS England?
Initially, the beautiful buildings and setting of the School gave such a wonderful impression. Since working at TASIS I have experienced a strong feeling of community, friendship, and care for students, and amongst colleagues.

               

JENNY SMOLKA

 Admissions Assistant

+44 (0) 1932 582316 

Where are you from?
I grew up and lived in Bisley, Surrey with my parents and older brother for most of my life. Since moving out, I have lived in Hampshire with my husband, who I married in 2018 (I was lucky enough to have two wedding celebrations; one here in the UK and one in Poland where my husband and his family are from). 

Why TASIS England? 
As soon as I walked onto campus, I knew this was where I wanted to start a new chapter in my life. The grounds and buildings are beautiful - as well as the wonderful people that I now get to see and work with every day. I love that our students are from all over the world, that there are so many cultures all under one roof, and that we are able to support all of the families with their journeys to TASIS. My background is in Art and Design and I have a love for craft. My first job was working in an Art Gallery and Museum, and most recently I worked at the University of Surrey for three years before coming to TASIS.
