Vicki Verdin1. How long did you spend at Ecolint?
Four years, 1968-72.

2. How did you come to attend Ecolint in the first place?
My family lived in Epinal, FR, and we three kids went to the internat.

3. Which teacher had the biggest impact on you and how?
Mr. Conway.  He was my geography teacher all 4 years – I then majored in geography and Spanish and taught both.

4. What was your favourite spot on campus and why?
Senior lawn. To hang out during free periods, on weekends, to watch the boys play football!

5. What was your favourite place in the wider region, and why?
Haute Savoie Alps for ski days and hiking with the Alpine Club.

6. Describe your life today, where you live and what you do.
I’ve lived in Sargans, Kanton St Gallen for 24 years now. Taught English and geography at a nearby school in Liechtenstein, but have gone into early retirement.

7. What should be Ecolint's top priority as it approaches its 100th anniversary?
Continue its all-are-equal-and-welcome philosophy and practice.

8. What "words of wisdom" would you pass on to today's Ecolint students?
Take every opportunity to live, study and work abroad – don’t just be a tourist.  

9. What has been the biggest impact of your Ecolint education on your life?
The international turns my life has taken: 11 years in Brazil, now 24 years in Switzerland, and the languages that go along with that.
