Who We Are ( Identities and Relationships in MYP) is one of the six themes or contexts we inquire into every year. Learners explore identity; beliefs and values; personal, physical, mental, social and spiritual health; human relationships including families, friends, communities and cultures; what it means to be human.
This week we will learn about and celebrate some of our staff as take a look at their classrooms and how they implement our IB curriculum. Join us for Open House on Wednesday to learn more and each week on the blog as we include a Teacher Feature each week.

Teacher Feature. Welcome to some of our new staff- Mr. Herron and Ms. Coley
Some of our MYP students interviewed Mr. Herron this week. This is Mr. Herron’s 6th year teaching. He considers himself to be caring when he thinks about the attributes of the Learner Profile because he loves fellow humans and their authentic selves. This year he is working at embracing the globally – minded focus of the iB curriculum. Mr. Herron said he is “excited to witness the exceptional minds in front of me on a daily basis as they adapt to new knowledge, information and beliefs in an intricate world.” Mr. Herron keep busy in his spare time hiking, biking, camping and playing with his puppy Midge. He also enjoys singing with his nephews and visiting with other family and friends.
