Keeley Ward, MYP Coordinator/Instructional Facilitator
The International Baccalaureate Organization aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
To this end the IBO works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.
These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.

I absolutely love education and working with young adolescents! I celebrate my 11th year in Iredell-Statesville Schools. I have been married for 11 years to Chad who teaches PE at Statesville Middle, and we have one son, Jackson, who is the love of our lives! I have two dogs (a Boxer and a Boxer-Pit), Nacho and Redick, and I have a black and white cat, Scooter.
I am looking forward to an exciting and productive 2012-13 year at Northview! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
