Karla: My family moved to the UK in January 2019 from Plymouth, Minnesota, for my husband Jeremiah’s 1st international assignment. We live in Cobham with our two children. Parker is in 3rd and Chloe in 5th grade at ACS. We found it challenging to move mid-year when the buzz and activity of the new school year had disappeared and we were 1 of only a handful of new families entering the lower school. The early connections we made with other families who had been in our place before were key to finding our way and getting settled as quickly as possible, both at school as well as in the broader community. I hope that in my role as a Country Representative I can bring information and opportunities to help families feel connected to the ACS and American community as early in their stay as possible and throughout the year, and look forward to meeting many of you this year
Jenny: My name is Jenny Bustamante, our family moved to Hersham in August of 2019. We have 3 daughters at ACS, Lucia is in 11th grade, Satine in 9th and Camila in 5th. We moved from Roswell, GA but I am originally from Minnesota. We have also lived in Brazil and Argentina.
Please help us celebrate the USA by volunteering with us throughout the year!
