Orientation

On 2 August, I will begin teacher orientation at KIS International School in Bangkok.  Throughout my 13 week practicum, I look forward to gaining practical and professional experience at an IB school.   While the principles and contexts underlying the curriculum are familiar to me from my work in and around Education Management, I will refine my mechanics in implementing the curriculum.  Updates to follow on this space!
