Why did you want to start the IB PYP at Huffman? The PYP IB program at Huffman aligns with my personal philosophy as an educator. I am so excited to expand student understanding through essential themes rather than isolated skills, and to encourage students to develop ideas that will benefit the greater good of society. Furthermore, I believe students are most successful when high expectations are set within a nurturing environment, and I know Huffman has created this space for student growth and development.
