Cambridge IGCSE™ Computer Science
This is one of my strongest learner profile traits: I have loved learning new things all my life. I read extensively—more than 100 books a year, in addition to reading news stories and magazine and journal articles. I also listen to a variety of podcasts from book reviews to philosophy discussions to variety podcasts such as RadioLab.
Throughout my teaching career I made sure to keep developing my craft by attending workshops and conferences on my own initiative, and I kept revising my curricula every year in order to improve the experience for my students.
Now that I have retired, I have continued to learn new things about teaching Literature and Theory of Knowledge, and I have taken up some new projects, including learning the violin, learning to paint, and learning to crochet. I participate in three book groups each month. My husband and I travel together; we have visited 49 of the 50 United States, and in 2020, we will visit #50 (North Dakota). Lifelong learning is what keeps life interesting!
I spent my undergraduate years at a small liberal arts college in North Carolina. My education there was in many ways similar to an IB education: broad, balanced and inquiry-driven.
I took several interdisciplinary courses which transformed my way of thinking about the disciplines as discrete subjects.
The most memorable of these was an interdisciplinary English/Science course called the Biogeography and Literature of Islands, which included a field study experience in St Ann’s Bay, Jamaica. Daily scuba diving followed by nightly talks about Shakespeare’s The Tempest or Derek Walcott’s Omeros? What more could you ask for?
Inquiring has always paid dividends.

Curiosity is what has driven many of the key events in my life, from learning new words to develop my English (i’ve got a vivid memory of being stopped in my tracks through sheer befuddlement at the word ‘mortified’ back in primary school) to moving abroad to broaden my horizons. Though it may seem trite, curious minds tend to be the ones that change the world, and there is nothing more satisfying than seeing a student who is determined to find out the ‘why’ or ‘how’ of a particular issue. Without this quality, i’ve seen how easy it is to coast and to unthinkingly accept a world that is in dire need of fresh new ideas.

Reflective / Thinker
I like to say to my students: we are all philosophers with a little ‘p.’ I love thinking about the world – problem solving, considering my ontological views, creating something new, whether it’s with words or ingredients for a salad.  It’s so important that we hear the perspectives of others to help us evolve in the way we think about ourselves and the world around us.
Debates and conversations are so important for learning for this reason, but so too are silent reading, writing, and reflection.  I do my best thinking on a run in the woods, a walk through our neighborhood in Vienna while my son naps, or at a quiet café terrace in the morning (ideally in Paris; my favourite place in the world!), where I can process all the wonderful ideas from my environment and my students.

Cambridge IGCSE™ ICT
I love learning, and I embrace any opportunity for personal growth and professional development. I have never seen education as a means to an end, but as part of a journey.
Two years ago, I completed my second Master’s degree (this time in Educational Leadership). Prior to embarking on my M.Ed., I obtained the International Teacher Certificate and the MYP certificate in teaching and learning. I haven’t totally ruled out a Ph.D. sometime in the future, but for now I’m quite content with using my own classroom as a vehicle for my own learning, not just my students’.
The new English A courses have allowed my department members and me to position ourselves as co-learners, and the opportunities for us to collaborate with each other have been invaluable.
Having the opportunity to teach Theory of Knowledge for 20 years meant that I necessarily had to expand my knowledge well beyond what I had when I first started teaching. I had university degrees in Linguistics and Secondary Education, along with the equivalent of a degree in literature, but for TOK I had to start learning an enormous amount about mathematics, science, human science, history, and the other arts.
I have been a life-long baseball fan, so I know a great deal about that sport, and a few years ago I started following Canadian curling and am developing my knowledge of that one.
My husband and I run a butterfly census and participate in a Citizen Science project through Cornell University tracking bird populations in our area, so I continue to develop my knowledge of both birds and butterflies. I figure there is no such thing as too much knowledge!
‘Lifelong learner’ is a phrase you hear a lot in education, and it’s certainly not without merit.
. I have always been trying to build up my knowledge of the world, particularly in the areas of politics and world events, and this is often driven by building relationships with others who can offer fresh perspectives that I would otherwise have never encountered. I believe people should always aim to know more and be capable of more with every passing year, and this is never more evident that seeing a wild year 7 student somehow transition into an articulate year 13 student ready to head off to university. 
Knowledgeable Inquirer
I have always loved being in school and I guess this has led to knowledge in different areas, but I never see knowledge as something that’s fixed.  I guess I think about knowledge a lot like a TOK teacher does!
Two of my most recent student experiences have been completing my PhD in Hong Kong and now doing an online yoga teaching course.  I never know exactly where my studies will lead me, and that’s the best part of the adventure.  I’m bringing my knowledge and inquiry together in a website called Conceptual Literature.

Caring / Communicator
People think I’m an extroverted and talkative person, but I find I can do my best communicating through writing and that I develop my international friendships even better through our written correspondences. 
I also love writing fiction to share my ideas and have published a novel called The White Night.
But maybe what’s most important in communication is listening.  We often forget to really listen to each other.  The world is busy, time is running… I think one of the best ways we can be caring teachers, friends, or family members is by listening to others, even when we can’t do anything to help them.

Most people who know me would probably say that one of my defining traits is the way that I approach the world from a highly rational thinking perspective, much more than from an emotional or intuitive one.
You can convince me to agree to something much faster by appealing to my thinking brain than you can by appealing to my feelings.
Within the span of about 18 months, I collaborated on 5 Hodder Education titles -- for both the MYP and DP.
Working on so many projects certainly required me to tap into my critical and creative thinking skills!
Always one for over-thinking, this is an aspect of the learner profile that comes naturally.
I’ve rarely been able to switch off my thoughts, and though I may seem to be staring blankly at a wall during a tedious meeting, there’s usually a lot more going on in my head (often creative ways of escaping the room so I can go do something more worthwhile). This often has its benefits - I can think through problems in abstract quite thoroughly - but it must always be married with subsequent action. This is something I am glad the IB values - that we must be thinkers and inquirers, but this must manifest itself in tangible effects on the world. 
Balanced & Principled
My principles are very much in sync with the teachings of yoga and those of the Toltec Four Agreements.  These principles include taking care of oneself, trying to enhance the greater good, finding beauty in the world, valuing our environment, and not making assumptions or taking things personally. 
I am still learning about the best ways to manifest my principles. One way to achieve this and be able to help others is through personal balance.  Everyone finds balance differently.  Finding the right amount of exercise, intellectual stimulation, time with friends, time alone, etc. is really helpful and I have experimented with this.  It changes throughout life: I used to be a competitive runner and exercised a lot more than I do now and therefore also had to eat and rest more.  Now with a baby at home, in some ways I feel more balanced and in others, I need to find space and time (and sleep!) to bring it back.  Your ideal isn’t always possible, but you can strive for it and take time out when possible to bring your balance back. 
Cambridge IGCSE™ Chemistry
Working with Hodder Education has given me the exciting opportunity to communicate and collaborate with author-educators in Australia, Austria and the United States.
Forming connections with like-minded educators has broadened my professional outlook and has given me new ideas and perspectives to consider.
I spent my adult life in a career dedicated to helping people improve their communication skills: the teaching of English, including literature, writing, and speaking.
I had the very good fortune, while in high school, to have been taught how to write very well, and, when I went to university, I discovered that that skill was much less rare than I had previously believed. I learned very fast the great value to me of the skill my high school teachers had given me. It doesn’t matter how smart you are or how much you know: if you can’t communicate it, no one can appreciate it. I deliberately chose teaching as a way of paying that gift forward.
As an English teacher, communication has been central to my life for as long as I can remember.

I’ve always been a firm believer that a strong teacher is a strong communicator, and a strong communicator is good at building relationships. If you can communicate the interest of a topic, if you can generate fascination, then the stress of school disappears as curiosity takes over and the ‘work’ of work disappears.

Cambridge IGCSE™ Physics
Although I can have fairly strong opinions, I paradoxically take a lot of time seeking out other perspectives and asking questions. 
Although social media has gotten a bad rap for perpetuating certain ideas or images, I find that Twitter and Instagram are great places for me to find others’ ideas.  Through a simple hashtag, one immediately has access to views or images related to the topic from all over the world and even in different languages.  We can share our ideas by connecting on Twitter - @tournerlesmots or Instagram - @conceptual_literature
I am principled, I would say, in a sort of old-fashioned way, which says that one must do what is right because it is right, regardless of whether anyone else is watching or will ever know. I try, though I do not always succeed, to live my life by asking myself, before I decide to do something: ‘Would I be embarrassed if others knew I was doing this?’
I also do my best to live up to agreements—meeting deadlines, fulfilling promises, and arriving places on time. I always think that rules do, indeed, apply to me, just as much as they apply to anyone else.
I also try to take definite actions in order to help to solve problems which I believe are important for everyone, such as ensuring fair access to elections for all citizens, improving the environment and doing something to stop global warming.
Over the past 10 years, I have come to embrace the IB’s philosophy of education.
The IB’s mission should be something all educators, not just IB educators, aspire to: “to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.”
Principled and Caring
I was a sensitive soul in my youth, and i’ve always been very aware of how a lack of empathy can sometimes cause people to unknowingly make life harder for others.

I’ve particularly enjoyed being a tutor and having an adult’s perspective on the various fallings out and problems at home. I have always had to remember that, deep down, we all strive to be principled and caring, we just sometimes need a little guidance to help us get there.

Cambridge IGCSE™ and O Level History
I’ve always been open-minded to trying new things, be it food, travel, or sports.

I’ve certainly found many things I don’t like, but i’ve always known that I need to judge things for myself rather than go on the advice of others. Obviously one of the best ways of opening minds is travelling, and I’ve been everywhere from North Korea to Peru. These experiences have allowed me to see the world with a broader perspective, and I feel I have a greater appreciation and understanding of the world and my place within it as a consequence.

The English that I studied when I was in school was fairly limited to the British Isles and North America (more specifically, the U.S.). Teaching the IB Diploma Programme, with its emphasis on literature of the wider English speaking world and literature in translation, has really opened my mind to authors outside of the traditional canon.
Living in London, too, is a bibliophile’s dream: there are so many publishing houses promoting new authors and works, and my school’s location in the heart of the city means that we can really take advantage of some of the latest talks and events at places like the British Library and the Southbank Centre. Literature really is a window to the world!
I was born in a part of the world in which open-mindedness was, and is, highly valued: the San Francisco bay area.
My parents always made it clear that other people—no matter how different from me—were to be considered my equal in every way and that I was not to make judgements based on appearance or traditions or beliefs which differed from mine. Probably this early experience is part of what drew me to the IB programme with its expressly stated value for open-mindedness and the belief, stated in the IB mission statement, that ‘…others with their differences can also be right.’
Risk Taker
I think when we stop trying new things, we really stop living.  Of course, one has to be careful!
But I’ve found that trying new things with my body, like surfing, complement the new ideas I grapple with from books.  I like to keep pushing my mind and body in hobbies I have long enjoyed: skiing, writing, and travelling.
Cambridge IGCSE™ and O Level Business Studies
I care about fairness, integrity, and striving for excellence
I love books, music, and cats, and I have been married for 31 years to a man I dated for 7 years before that.
Having three children has certainly given me a different perspective on working with young people.
My priority as a classroom teacher has shifted from teaching my subject to teaching students. My most important job is to ensure that my students are happy, safe and feel cared for as learners. If all of those elements are in place, then success will inevitably follow.
I was forever coming home with scrapes, bruises, and the occasional missing tooth in my childhood, whether it was football, riding a bike, or attempting to climb something that didn’t want to be climbed.
This attitude has always ensured life has remained interesting, and it is something which we can all apply to our learning too. The amount of times I tried something that failed miserably at school or put forward an answer that was way off the mark is beyond counting, but it’s important to never let this stop you trying. We live in a world that is too afraid of failure and too conscious of risk - get out there and give it a go!
Balance and the IB are often seen as chalk and cheese, as many of my students can attest, but its importance cannot be stressed enough.
I’ve definitely had times in my life where the balance has been thrown off and i’ve fallen head-first into a mountain of work - we have to be realistic and accept that sometimes these moments can’t be avoided - but it’s always been important that over the longer term my life has been broadly in balance. Though I was always very good at maintaining focus in the build-up to an exam or coursework deadline, I was then immediately relaxing by ensuring I spent time with friends or honing my Mario Kart skills with a few skilfully timed green shells. 
Cambridge IGCSE™ and O Level Economics
I’ve taken some physical risks (skydiving at 19 comes to mind!) and some emotional risks (like moving countries), but to be honest just stepping into the classroom each day is a bit of a risk.
I mean this in a positive way: I find that teaching allows me to develop as a learner –
like my students – and teaching literature in particular gives my students and me an opportunity to express different ideas or viewpoints, some of which may be unpopular.
I have taken on several new risks in the last year since I retired from classroom teaching: I have undertaking co-writing and editing several books for Hodder Education and I have undertaken the job of writing two new workshops for the upcoming Theory of Knowledge curriculum.
I have also taken up learning how to play the violin and how to crochet, though I cannot say that great progress has been made in those endeavors just yet!
For most IB teachers, balance is one of the most difficult of the learner profile traits to achieve, because we put so much time and energy into our commitment to delivering the IB curriculum for our students as it ought to be delivered.
Even now that I have retired, I have been involved in many projects related to the IB programme—including writing and editing books, giving teacher training workshops, and designing new workshops that will be delivered by others—and I have not had a lot of time to balance out my life with many other activities. Still: I make an effort with reading, running a butterfly census, visiting national park sites to learn about the history of the United States, watching baseball and curling, geocaching, and trying to keep our household in some semblance of order!
It’s hard to find balance with a full time job and three children at home, but I do try as much as possible to ensure that I get some head space every day – even if that means multitasking by reading on my daily commute into London.
Living in the capital certainly has its benefits, but my family and I do like to get out of the city as much as possible; I find that I am much more centred when I can escape the noise and pace of our hectic urban life.
Cambridge IGCSE™ First Language English
Though too much reflection can turn into a carnivalesque hall of mirrors, meaningful reflection has always been important to me.
Without these moments of consideration, some of the more significant decisions in my life would not have taken place. I have found that taking myself out of the relentlessness of day-to-day existence to consider more deeply what I have been doing has been a big factor in remaining happy. Without reflection, it is far too easy to sleepwalk into situations you would much rather not be in.
Cambridge International AS/A Level Biology
Apart from academic writing, I have had a lifelong love of creative writing. As part of my graduate studies in poetry writing, I attended a summer writing programme in Prague, which allowed me the space to reflect on myself and my writing practice.
Sadly, I don’t have as much time to cultivate that passion these days with such a busy work and home life.
