What Our Teachers Say

Find out what our dedicated teachers have to say about working at our school.

Shelley Love

METAGS Coordinator and Elementary School Math Coach

"The MET is a beautiful learning community because everyone is committed to helping each child reach their full potential."

Teachers look at each child as an individual and seek to help them develop their skills and abilities to be successful in their present and in the future. Shelley Love

"The bonds created here make us more than a community. We are a family, with everyone looking out for one another so we can all live out the learner profile in our daily lives.  We're all learning together every day. While we may have the titles of teachers and students, we're all students on a journey of discovery through inquiry together."

Anne Gegg

Secondary School Humanities Teacher and CAS Coordinator

"As a teacher you dream of teaching at a school where you can teach topics that you're passionate about that also excite and engage your students. At the MET, we as teachers get to do just that. I am able to teach things that are aimed at making the world a better place, which is ultimately my passion. Not only do I get to teach them about the topic, I am able to connect it to the outside world."

Students may learn about social issues affecting the world in the classroom, but they connect it with outside experiences and trips that bring their learning to life and motivate them to make positive changes in their community. Anne Gegg

"Learning should be something that motivates students to make changes in the world and at the MET we are not only allowed to do that, we are inspired to do so."

Dylan Carter

Middle School and IB MYP Curriculum Coordinator and DP History Teacher

"The IB Middle Years Program (MYP) is a perfect fit here at the MET due to our dedicated teaching staff. Our MYP teachers are fully aware that their students have wonderfully unique characteristics and limitless potential that must be nurtured. The MYP framework enriches our students’ education by encouraging hands-on learning, and our teachers have mastered experiential techniques that are applied in the classroom and out in the field. "

Students are taught to learn for understanding - not just memorize facts. Dylan Carter

"Our IB MYP curriculum is developed by our teachers, and in their studies students will have to explore globally significant issues - this in turn encourages international mindedness. MET MYP students are trained by their teachers to be critical thinkers, in analyzing and evaluating these issues beyond a superficial level.

The most significant contribution the MYP framework provides are skill-sets that will prepare our students to become lifelong learners. MYP teachers coach students in how to: be organized, meet deadlines, concentrate, bounce back after adversity, persist and think positively - all requirements for future success."

Yarizeth Torrente

Secondary School Spanish Teacher

"As a Spanish Language Acquisition Teacher I have had the opportunity of sharing with our school community the wonders of the Spanish language, and my love for Panama’s rich culture and folklore.

Our learning community is quite diverse and special, embodying the IB Learner Profile traits."

At the MET, we are thinkers, knowledgeable, open minded, risk takers, reflective, caring, inquirers, communicators and principled. Yarizeth Torrente

"These traits are palpable throughout every section of the school and celebrated in every event, activity and tradition. It is what makes the MET one of the best learning environments I have witnessed.

Each day at the MET is enriching and dynamic. We all learn from one another: students from teachers, and teachers from students. Our multicultural and international community provides a rich learning environment, that celebrates diversity and honors our local culture."

Michael Foxmann

IB DP Curriculum Coordinator and DP History Teacher

"One thing that immediately stood out to me regarding the programs at the MET, is the expectation for student engagement and action. Teachers set high expectations for their students and structure supportive learning experiences to help students stretch and grow. More importantly, the students set high expectations for themselves, and demonstrate the skills and attitudes necessary to meet or exceed those goals in the classroom and in the community. As an authorized IB World School offering the Diploma Program, these high expectations are set not only for academics, but for students’ personal development as well.

The Diploma Program features rigorous academics, with the Extended Essay and Theory of Knowledge course providing students with unique intellectual opportunities. However, it is the emphasis on developing habits and skills, thinking conceptually, and taking action based on your learning that separates the Diploma Program from other college preparatory courses.

In the digital information age, knowledge by itself has little value. Students must be able to process, evaluate, synthesize, and apply their learning in new contexts."

 

 

At the MET, students use their curiosity, creativity, compassion, and dedication to succeed at a high level in academic, artistic, athletic, and service-oriented pursuits. Michael Foxmann
