Meet our Academic Leadership team
IB PYP Coordinator
Hello all, my name is Andrea Usher is from the Caribbean island of Jamaica (in the West Indies). My mother tongue is English. This is my 27th year of teaching, 7 of these year of was spent as an International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IBPYP) educator. I hold a diploma in Classroom Teaching, a Bachelor (BA) degree in Primary Education; as well as a Masters of Education (M.Ed) degree in Elementary Education. I have recently completed my 2nd Masters’ degree in Curriculum and Instruction. Prior to joining IUIS, I was a PYP educator at the Swiss International School of Qatar (SISQ) and was also IB PYP Coordinator and homeroom teacher at Lyceum 6 in Azerbaijan.
I am looking forward to continuing my educational journey here at Invento as I have a passion for student agency and action, encouraging all learners to become passionate, caring and respectful global citizens. My favourite PYP transdisciplinary theme is 'Who we are’ because I enjoys learner individuality and seeing the world through the eyes of different perspectives.
