  1. That IB program is not what it appears. The fact is that all IB programs don’t have sufficient time to truly and authentically lead to the very high levels of actual proficiency need to pass that test. This school is clearly full of privileged white kids who play the memorization game in return for the “IB” label on their college transcript. I would caution you here.

    I don’t want to dissuade you from this job! Just want to make sure you get into the situation that you are expecting. I don’t think you are, but it is up to you to make a decision. I hope I am wrong, but I feel obliged to throw up a red flag.

    I just don’t want you shocked in the fall – since you have a secure job that is easy for you now, something that you have worked many years (didn’t you joint the PLC like 10 years ago?). You have learned to live with your current job in spite of its shortcomings. Things have been worse, if I remember correctly.

  2. This is interesting. I’ve personally never worked in a school (secondary or university) that touted their methodologies so much, so I can understand the attraction. I’d immediately think “they really have it going on over there!” It makes sense to be skeptical about this since they’re using all the buzz words. I don’t like buzz words. I almost prefer the school that just lets me do what I think is best and supports me in classroom management.
