Art Teacher
Frederic Beaugeard
After teaching art and French many years in diverse international school settings around the world, Mr. Frederic Beaugeard is now an IB visual art teacher. He has an official qualification delivered by the IB organization and he was recently accepted as an IB examiner for World and Cultures. His former education in France, a baccalaureate in art, French literature, and philosophy, and a master in art from the Beaux-arts of Paris gave him the necessary rigor and flexibly, academically and mentally, to teach successfully the IB program, which is originally from the francophone part of Switzerland. Later he obtained his K12 teaching certification in art and French at Millikin University, Illinois. It included a student teaching internship at the university level. Note that he also taught the related AP program in the American School of Kuwait. Throughout his career in education he basically taught all grade levels. Finally he is an artist which is an advantage in teaching studio art in a less didactic way closer to the process of creation requiring students' autonomy and self-reflection, and a writer.
Music Teacher
Victoria Sewell
Ms. Victoria Sewell received her Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education with a concentration in Instrumental Music from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.  Ms. Sewell holds an Illinois Professional Educator License in K-12 Music and has experience teaching band and music at the elementary, middle, and high school levels.
