Email address:  mandygoynes@gmail.com

IB Experience:  

I do not have IB experience yet but am wishing to get it. I am very interested in teaching for an IB school and am a member of Search Associates. I have done a great deal of research on my own into the IB process and feel my personal teaching style directly correlates with the ideals and processes within IB education. The arts inherently have inquiry based learning built into how we teach, which makes me feel like I\'ve been teaching an IB curriculum my entire teaching career. In addition, the importance of creating life-long learners within our students is something I hold near and dear to my heart. I would love to have the opportunity to gain IB experience in Texas.
