Our purpose in sharing the CASIE Blog is to encourage and support our readers.
We want to share our experiences: with IB schools, with PZ ideas, with good educational practices. We also want to share our wonderings and puzzles, mostly about education, because we have some VERY experienced educators on staff. We also plan to share other topics which we think will be of interest and use to you, because we have some very capable and versatile non-educators on staff too.
You will mostly be hearing from Jill Sims, our Director of Education, and will occasionally see another staff member contributing to the blog. Jill says:
“In my over thirty years as a teacher, assistant principal, principal, executive director of all thing teaching and learning at the district level, and my current roles as an IB coordinator and Director of Education at CASIE, I have had so many experiences with hundreds of educators K-12, and learned so much about how to collaborate in ways that help others make strides towards continuous professional growth!
I want to encourage you because frankly, you deserve it. I hope my blog posts feel like we’re in it together and that I am a friendly guide on the side. My first post is going to focus on questions that provoke our thinking to help write terrific academic and professional learning goals.”
