Schools are responsible for transforming our next generation into the future caretakers of the world. BASIS International & Bilingual Schools Wuhan is a community-minded school focused on enriching the lives and opportunities of the students, families, and faculty who are a part of it.

Educating the treasured minds of our youth is one of the greatest endeavors one could seek out and one I feel I was personally called to. And when one is seeking out treasure, it helps to have a map to give guidance and direction. As the old adage goes, “X marks the spot” and I have several marks of excellent teaching and learning that I hope to inform the culture and practice at BASIS International & Bilingual Schools Wuhan.

Excitement, Expectations, Experimentation, Expansion, and Exchange are the keys to our culture and practice. Excitement to be in school from both students and faculty. Clear expectations facilitate the greatest amount of learning. School should be a haven for students and faculty to experiment in their studies and practice knowing they are supported in their efforts. We can always do better through learning, organization, continual reflection of our practice, and dialogue. Finally, magic happens when teachers talk. Whether it is through informal discussions over lunch, a quick chat in the hallway, or through organized professional learning communities—teachers collaborating improves student outcomes by opening the door to new ideas and perspectives.

To summarize, if you feel called to teaching and are seeking new opportunities, I encourage you to look into BASIS International & Bilingual Schools Wuhan, it may just be the next destination you were looking to grow your career.
