Eagles in the Spotlight

Helaina E. '14

After graduating from ISZL in 2014, Alumni Ambassador Helaina Elardo went on to study Education at the University of York and University of Cambridge, then taught in London and California. This year, she moved to Qatar to take on a teaching position at the International School of London, Doha. Helaina reflects on her time at ISZL with gratitude for what she has learned and is able to share with her students today:

Completing the MYP and IB at ISZL shaped me to be flexible and adaptable to different settings and cultures, which helped me tremendously to adjust to a new life in Qatar and teaching the PYP. Completing the diploma programme influenced my outlook on education and gave me insight into student learning processes, now reflected in my teaching strategies. I’ve already been able to contribute ideas in my new job based on experiences I had at ISZL.
