I have been teaching the IB for 7 years now, and I have found these years to be the most rewarding of my career. The IB students I have worked with have been some of the best with the majority going on to world-class universities and securing excellent jobs in their home countries or abroad. As a teacher, you have the opportunity to have a positive impact on an awful lot of lives, which is not something that is afforded to those in other professions. I am looking forward to working with the students here at Haileybury Astana, as their Head of Sixth Form and seeing many more pupils go on to have successful careers.
