Learning Support Coordinators
The Learning Support Coordinators are looking forward to working with school-based teams to provide ongoing admin. and teacher support to ensure that students' diverse learning needs are met within our unique school communities. Elizabeth Pokorny will be working with schools in Europe and Africa, Corene Anderson will be working with schools in China, East Asia, and North Central Asia, and Kelly Schelble will be working with schools in the Balkans, Caucasus, and the Americas.
While the Learning Support Team will continue to partner directly with schools for individual learning supports, each month will center around a ‘learning support topic’ for schools to engage with. A different medium that focuses on the monthly theme will be shared weekly with schools, from podcasts and webinars to articles and classroom resources, the LSC team will strive to help expand mindsets, grow knowledge, and develop skills surrounding learning support in QSI school communities. While there is a clear blueprint of the learning support topics that will be covered in the first months of the school year, the LSC team will be sending a survey link to Directors to hear from schools directly about topics of need or interest. As always, do not hesitate to reach out to the LSC team with any specific questions, concerns, or clarifications.
