    Why did you want to start the IB PYP at Huffman? My experience in teaching grade school has all been at IB schools. The inquiry-based learning is my favorite type of teaching and learning. When I taught in the MYP program, I had to chance to really immerse myself in the planning of our Units of Inquiry while prepping our school for a recertification. This solidified my love for the inquiry-based learning and when my family relocated to Plano, this was the place for me!
