Faculty & Staff IB Learner Profiles

Attributes of the learner profile are found all throughout ISB. ISB uses the IB learner profile to center students’ learning. The IB learner profile is a broad range of human capacities and responsibilities that go hand in hand with academic success. The attributes of the learner profile encompass intellectual, personal, emotional, and social growth. The development and demonstration of these attributes are foundational to students becoming internationally-minded, active, and caring community members who respect themselves, others, and the world around them.

Staff Spotlight: Kristen Moreland

Kristen Moreland joined ISB in Fall 2018 as the Enrichment and Summer Programs Coordinator. Did you know that she speaks more than four languages? I sat down with Kristen to learn more about her personal experience with language immersion and her passion for cross-cultural education.

Staff Spotlight: Anne-Sophie Devouassoux

Pre-K Head Teacher Anne-Sophie Devouassoux began teaching in ISB’s Preschool in 2014. She recently sat down with us to share her journey from her hometown in the French Alps to her adventures hiking in Nepal, biking through Italy, surfing in Ecuador, and finally teaching here in New York City, and how these experiences have shaped her as an educator.
