Thanks for stopping by my education blog. I started this site in early 2020 as an opportunity to share my life as an IB educator in a small school setting and have found it to be an excellent reflective tool. I hope to share PYP lesson ideas to give you inspiration, as well as unit overviews for the MYP. These past few years, I have spent countless hours browsing educator blogs for these exact same topics and believe we can all benefit from more ideas to challenge ourselves and keep evolving our teaching practices.

Currently living in Japan and on a mission to find the best surf spots and castles that the country has to offer!
