SIS Teachers Examining for the IB
Posted 09/13/2017 09:22AM

We now have a cohort of teachers that are IB examiners who play an important role in maintaining the quality of assessment for which the IB is known worldwide. They have the opportunity to gain a greater insight into the IB assessment process, receiving invaluable training in an online environment enhancing their professional development. The IB only hires "competent, motivated and engaged people with an international mindset, who are driven by high professional standards" (IBO). SIS teachers are the type of professionals IB is looking for. The teachers who are involved in IB examining are:

Amy Atkinson - Visual Arts HL/SL Comparative Study

Charles Tetreault - Economics HL Paper 2 and Extended Essay

Christine Vithayathil - English B SL Paper 1 and Extended Essay

Daiju Vithayathil - Business Management HL Paper 1 and Extended Essay

Denise Wang - Chinese Lang & Lit Paper HL 2 and Oral Commentary

Eunice Ong - Chinese Lang & Lit Paper SL 1

Jamie Bacigalupo - English Lang & Lit Paper HL 1

An SIS teacher says, "I truly feel like an 'expert' now that I have read and marked so many student essays. I have learned through exemplars, and am a better teacher for it. I wanted to do it to help me become a better teacher. Having a good understanding of assessment helps me to be more effective in my teaching of all ability of students and helping students to achieve their potential." As an IB Coordinator, I encourage teachers to take up such roles as it is a great professional learning opportunity and this has a great impact on student learning.
