A Director's Perspective
With a major Reopening Plan in place and the prospect of a new director arriving in the midst of a global crisis, the 2020-21 school year started at ISB.
At this particular moment in time, we are all learning, adapting and evolving.
Learning to stay physically distanced, but emotionally connected. Adapting to new ways of embracing the unpredictable.
Evolving to a better version of ourselves. We are returning to better...and we are capturing our Learning in Action.
This platform is designed to provide authentic windows into life and learning at ISB by capturing learning stories from members of our community. Stories are released weekly and a Digital Publication is shared at the end of a monthly learning cycle.
