Why did you want to start the IB PYP at Huffman? I am thrilled to be apart of the IB PYP program at Huffman. IB encourages students to become critical thinkers while promoting independent life-long learning. Students are prepared to be global learners. I love that this program is student-centered and helps students develop awareness of the many cultures that surround us!
