    Hi, I am Regina, teaching as an IB PYP teacher in Switzerland. I would like to hear about how IB schools treat their staff i.e. are staff really part of the learning community? Does your school apply the IB philosophy to the staff of the school or is this more for the students?
    I have worked in 3 IB schools 2 in Europe and 1 in the Middle East. I found 2 of the schools striving towards trying to apply the IB philosophy to their staff and one missing badly, to the extent that the staff have no real voice.
    I have friends who worked in Vietnam and had an awful experience with very little support from the administration.
    I kind of think that the IB should really be looking more closely at how the staff are treated, especially as in some countries the teachers have so very few rights and no where to turn to when things go horribly wrong in terms of unfair or mistreatment.
    I think that there should be more recognition of schools that have a healthy working environment, the British International Schools have such an award!
    How do other teachers feel?
  12. I`m Eliza! Hello! Nice to meet you!
