Gym is more than just sport. At AIS we believe in Body - Mind - Soul development.

Gaby Birjovanu

Hello, my name is Gaby Birjovanu. I am originally from Romania. Twelve years ago, my Dutch adventure commenced. I came to the Netherlands after completing my studies in the field of physical education and sports.

My transition to the Netherlands was propelled by my role as a professional handball player.

Along this path, I came to realize my genuine affinity for working with children and sharing my passion for sports.

Dean Thompson 

I am originally from Newcastle, England but I have been living and working in Shanghai for the past 5 years.  

I am passionate about keeping active through a variety of sports and I particularly enjoy football. I also like travelling and I’ve recently started backpacking as I try to get closer to nature.  

My second passion is teaching. I think it’s important to help children progress through positive learning experiences. Adding fun to learning creates the best educational experience possible.

I am thrilled to be joining AIS and I look forward to helping to create a positive learning environment.
