PHILOSOPHY

We think there is a need for a new kind of publication about what was happening in international schools. We want to reflect conversations in faculty lounges and staff rooms around the world, publishing articles about best practice, what it means to be an international teacher, and where to go on holiday!

WRITERS

Contributors include teachers who want to share their story about something that has worked in the classroom, changemakers and authors whose ideas are finding new audiences in the international community.
