New Staff Picture

As Chadwick International went from K-7 to PK-8, and doubled class sizes, the staff literally doubled this year. There were something like 35 new hires. It's a great mix of folks, from places across the world such as New Zealand, Australia, Taiwan, China, Wales, and Zimbabwe.

Unlike many international schools, Chadwick broke the cardinal rules of refusing to hire teachers without a minimum of two years experience overseas, and refusing to hire teachers with non-teaching spouses/partners. Normally, these two requirements shrink the pool of qualified candidates quite a bit, but Chadwick was able to scoop up some real coups by bucking the norms of these international teaching guidelines.

Just another reason why I love this school so far.

That, and my headmaster plays ultimate fisbeee.
