The XLIS application to The East Asia Regional Council of Schools (EARCOS) was accepted. This organization is the leading professional development organization in Asia. All of our staff will now have access to a range of PD opportunities (www.earcos.org/professional_development.php). Only accredited schools whose mission aligns with the EARCOS mission are included in this organization and XLIS looks forward to contributing and possibly hosting EARCOS events in Xi’an in the future.
The goals of EARCOS include:
Michael Koran, who teaches MYP English Language Acquisition, is representing the school in the role of EARCOS Teacher Representative. Mr. Koran holds a Masters degree in Educational Leadership through Concordia University and has been teaching for ten years. As part of the role, Mr. Koran will be selecting and supporting XLIS teachers to present at the annual EARCOS teachers conference. In addition, he will be communicating all professional development opportunities available to XLIS staff through the EARCOS community.
