    Ms. Sara Lyle- IB Coordinator

    I graduated from the College of Charleston with a BA in Spanish and Secondary Education.  I proudly lead the International Baccalaureate Primary Years (PYP) and Middle Years (MYP) programs at Buist Academy for Advanced Studies.  In January of the 2010-2011 school year, I moved from leading a class to leading a school in the position of International Baccalaureate (IB) coordinator. In a few short months, I successfully led the Middle Years Programme (MYP) through a critical authorization.  The success completed the program continuum from Kindergarten through 8th grade and confirmed the identity of Buist Academy- an IB World School.
     Experience as both a PYP and MYP Language B teacher leads me to believe in the significant results produced by the IB program.   I see firsthand how language gives learners the power to connect to the expanding world and become valuable, global citizens. This motivates me to actively serve the program.

    We practice engaging strategies. 

    We make the standards for teaching and learning more interesting.

    We provoke curiosity.
