Why did you want to start the IB PYP at Huffman? This is a tremendous opportunity to teach in a different way. Building global minded students through open ended thinking is a privilege and challenge I am so excited to be a part of. Plus I am so impressed by the AMAZING staff at Huffman IB PYP. I am a lucky teacher!
