• Ann Rem Loraine Rava-Lynn


    Ann Rava-Lynn has been an educator for 16 years, specifically working with children ages 3-12. As a school leader and member of the International Baccalaureate Educator Network, the main focus of her professional work is providing quality learning and teaching to children regardless of cultural, linguistic and social and economic background. She believes that education should be a right, not a privilege, for all, especially for children often marginalized in developing countries and gender-unequal societies. Having worked in the field of education, she sees how my work and profession are essential in making a difference in the lives of children. While it seems little on how she can create an impact with her students in the classroom and being a school member; however, every small act of charity and willingness to give hope, especially to children, can be transformational. She has written a couple of blogs on the IBPYP site to highlight children’s inherent capabilities and competencies to take a learning experience that is usually part of the PYP 5 (ages 10-11) curriculum called the PYP Exhibition. These blogs provided a new lens of the children’s ability to inquire into meaningful topics and empower them as learners.
