Our Team

ASP Coordinator—Shoko Endo

I’m Shoko. I’ve been at Aoba for almost a quarter century.  Leaving my position as a teacher, I will be planning and managing ASP, as well as planning and managing events for the entire school.  My long years in the classroom will hopefully be beneficial in planning meaningful ASP programs, trips, and events that are linked to our Core Values.  

Athletics Director—Nicolas Dhuez

As the athletics director (AD), I oversee all aspects of our athletics program, including scheduling, budget preparation, promotion, compliance, and facility use. The AD collaborates with other ADs and coaches in leagues about scheduling issues as well. We also speak with league officials about subjects such as setting and adapting league rules.
