Our Staff

We believe that the teacher is the single most important factor affecting student learning in the classroom. Other factors —resources, facilities, curriculum — are important, but ultimately, it is the teacher who connects with the students and engages them in learning.

At Cedar International School, we have excellent teachers. Hailing from 11 different countries, they are a vibrant mix of seasoned veterans and energetic young teachers. Over 70% hold Master’s or other advanced degrees, including two doctorates. Six are IB Examiners. Three are site evaluators for the IB or Council of International Schools. When such skilled and passionate teachers are combined with quality resources, the latest technology, an expanding facility, and an internationally-recognized curriculum, it creates a recipe for success.

Indeed, it creates the very atmosphere we enjoy at Cedar, where students and teachers support and challenge one another, learn, laugh and grow together while pursuing excellence.
