On September 8, Dr. Dick Krajczar visited YIS. It was his second visit to the school as the Executive Director of EARCOS, the East Asia Regional Council of Schools.
EARCOS focuses on teachers and international school staff. The organization sponsors leadership conferences, regional workshops for professional development, and supports advancements in teaching. Many YIS teachers and administrators attend EARCOS events annually. The meetings take place all over Asia, giving school staff an opportunity to travel to different international schools and bring new ideas back to Yangon.
This is the third time Dr. K has visited YIS. He last visited in 2011.
On this visit, Dr. K had conversations with teachers and students. He also toured the early childhood campus. He was impressed by the school’s physical expansion and the resources available to teachers and students. Having witnessed the growth of the school, he was impressed by the college and university acceptances YIS students have achieved since 2008.
Dr. K left YIS with encouragement to keep up the good work.
