Why did you want to start the IB PYP at Huffman? I wanted to start the IB PYP at Huffman because I value student-centered instruction that also places an emphasis on social and emotional learning. The IB PYP program instills the importance of inquiry, reflection, and open-mindedness. Students are also accepting of one another and strive for success, not just academically, but also in other areas of life.
