About the IB PYP Coordinator
Heather Flugrad, IB PYP Coordinator
My name is Heather Flugrad and I am the Coordinator of our International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP) at Harmony Grove Elementary School- A Global Academy. I attended Wheelock College where I received a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and a Masters Degree in Special Education. I have been a proud member of this school community since 2008, teaching 4th grade as a Special Educator and a classroom teacher before becoming the IB PYP Coordinator in 2018. I participated in my first IB workshop “Making the PYP Happen” in 2011 and was part of the leadership team that led our school to become an authorized IB PYP school in 2015. Since then, I have attended many IB workshops and have visited several IB PYP Schools in the USA and abroad, including an IB PYP school in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I love to travel and have visited many countries across 6 continents. I have always believed in the importance of learning about different cultures, making connections to the world around us, and reflecting on ways we can help make the world a better place. I am passionate about the IB mission “to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.” The IB Learner Profile attributes that most describe me are Caring and Open-Minded!
