Brittany Weiss, Associate Director of International Admissions at Stoneleigh-Burnham School in Greenfield, MA, has joined the all-volunteer board of directors for the International Language Institute of Massachusetts (ILI).
“We are very pleased to have Brittany as part of the ILI family,” said ILI board president Eric Wirth. “Her extensive academic and professional background around the world and here at home will go far in supporting our work, including high-quality language instruction and teacher training, free English classes for immigrants and refugees, and volunteer opportunities throughout the Pioneer Valley.”
Weiss has considerable experience abroad in Asia, Latin America, the United Kingdom, and western and central Europe. Prior to joining Stoneleigh-Burnham, she was Admissions Associate at the American International School of Budapest in Budapest, Hungary, where she worked with students and families from more than 60 nationalities. Earlier, she served as Assistant Director of Alumni Engagement at her alma mater, Williston Northampton School in Easthampton, MA, and as a resident faculty member at Emma Willard School in Troy, NY. She holds a BA in Spanish from Siena College and an MS in educational administration and policy studies from University at Albany.
“Through her chosen career, Brittany has developed a passion for collegial teamwork on the job,” said ILI Executive Director Caroline Gear. “Her skills and enthusiasm are a welcome addition to our board and much appreciated by staff.”
