I’m so excited about the Global School Tour, because this year I started at a great, new school and I’m just itching to show people this new, great school, where I am lucky enough to be working this year.
Here is a tour of my new school, the International School of Morocco. It’s a brand new school and I’m so excited to be a part of it!
Here is the outside of the building. My room is the top, left hand window. See all those windows! I never have to turn my lights on.
Here are the pet rabbits. We also have turtles, but I didn’t catch them for a picture. The kids love to feed the rabbits and turtles during recess.
Here is our garden. The kids spend a lot of recess time watering the plants and vegetables (and sometimes just the grass, lol!) They also love to watch the Monarch butterflies that lay their eggs here.
Here is the entrance to the school. Since it is only the second year of the school’s existence, it is still small. There are three classrooms and a library upstairs and three classrooms and a computer lab upstairs.
Here is the French and Arabic classroom. Students start learning 3 languages (French, Arabic and English) at the age of 3 years old here. We spend lots of time talking about languages and how they are used and connected.
Here is the library. The kids love the cool, red chairs – a little too much, they all want a chance to sit in them!
Here is the K4/K5 classroom. All of the classes except PK (3 year olds) are multi-age, in order to give kids a chance to learn from those older and younger than them.
This is the drama room. Kids go to drama once a week for enrichment. They also go to art and music, and PE twice a week.
Here is my classroom. I teach Grades 3 & 4 this year. We are teaching UK and AERO standards, which is new to me, but has been a great learning experience.

I hope you enjoyed your tour. Please note that my school is an international school and not a “typical” Moroccan school.
