Kristine Atrens
ELL Coordinator, Latvian Studies Teacher

I will be teaching Preschool and Primary Curriculum and ELL Coordinator and Latvian Studies teacher Gr1-5. This will be my 3rd academic year at EIS.


  • Diploma of Teaching, Australian Catholic University;
  • Graduate Dip in Expressive and Perf. Arts, University of New South Wales, Australia.
  • Before EIS I was working at:

  • 11 years at ISL;
  • 5 years at ISR;
  • 5 years at 3 different schools in Sydney Australia.
  • I am extremely proud of my 2 beautiful daughters who have both graduated the IBDP. I am proud that I have helped to educate hundreds of students and I am proud that I can share my 18 years of PYP experience with other educators.

    After work I like to spend time with my family. Work in the garden (in the warmer months). Visit galleries and theatre productions as well as other cultural events.

    To get up in the morning and go to school I tell myself... I can make a difference. Who's life will I have an impact on today?

    When I was a child I wanted to become a teacher. Never seriously considered anything else!

    I am learning from kids how to go with the flow.

    The school of the future is a community of shared learning.
