“Teaching at EIS is definitely an opportunity for me as a teacher to work on the topics we normally cannot include into our regular state programmes due to lack of time. The IB programme tends to do just the opposite: tackling and discovering topics together with our students and letting our inherent curious nature lead the way.

Through the IB philosophy the students can fully devote their attention to what they are learning and co-create the course to meet their needs as well. I am satisfied to have the role of a mediator of knowledge, rather than just transferring it to the students. It is learning through inquiry and in a broader human context that helps the students to connect the dots of their overall knowledge. “
