Here is a personal note from Paula:
I am thrilled to join the TIS team as First grade teacher this year and look forward to all the fun learning experiences that await. Throughout my career in education, I have found great joy in listening to my students’ ideas and guiding them as they discover the world by engaging in hands on projects. A firm believer in the IBO’s Primary Years Program, I am excited to meet the families who enroll their children at TIS as we will work together in fostering International Mindedness. As a Spanish teacher, I gladly take on the responsibility of teaching a language that will open children’s’ minds to new cultures and perspectives. I look forward to creating a caring community of learners where we will read lots of books, make experiments, create, inquire, debate, and have tons of fun!
