I love telling parents how proud I am of their child's achievements. As a mother myself, I know how your heart swells when others love your child too.
The IB philosophy and the enthusiasm for IB among the staff. I love that students can tell you what being a risk taker means or what being an inquirer means. I love that students use words like cooperation and enthusiasm in their every day conversations. This early foundation builds globally minded thinkers.

I am the part time kindergarten teacher at McGraw. Our schedule is 8:55-3:38 Monday, Tuesday, Thursday. This schedule provides us plenty of opportunity for exploration in our learning. As part of an IB school, we seek to foster inquiry and discovery as opposed to the teacher as the fountain of knowledge. Our students learn to be independent thinkers and risk takers in their learning. I seek to offer a classroom that provides learning at each students level of development. What this looks like is as one student practices forming correct letter formation, another student may be ready to link sounds to form a word while another student is writing sentences. I also believe in a classroom environment that is fun. Students can tell you that the two most important parts of our classroom are safety and fun. I believe children can thrive in learning outside. We spend a lot of time learning in and out of the classroom. Come on in and have a look!
