HS IB Economics/History Teacher


Starting date:  July 2018

The primary function of The International School of Panama Teacher is to facilitate the students learning process and create productive environments in which students can develop skills they might need at present or in the future.  He or she provides within the classroom learning opportunities for the students and assists in other school programs working harmoniously with the administrative staff and parents in support of the ISP Teaching Philosophy, school policy, regulations, objectives and goals.


We are a community of approximately 340 high school students (grades 9, 10, 11, and 12), fifty-plus faculty and staff members, and several hundred parents. Though a rigorous and engaging academic program sits at the core of the ISP high school experience – the arts, athletics, and service are also central to our program. The foundation that all of this is built upon is a shared belief that the most important thing that we do on this campus is take care of one another. 

We are very proud of the work, the learning, and the teaching we do together – and also quite humbled by the caliber of people we get to do it all with (on such a beautiful campus). We are all learning, growing, contributing, and finding (and fine-tuning) our passions in life. Students, faculty, and parents/families included.

The High School Faculty:

Our high school faculty is a mix of ISP founders and veterans who’ve been dedicated to ISP for 20 years, 25 years, or longer – along with many teachers who are relatively new to the school and bring experiences with them from all over the world. Our teaching staff is from the US, Canada, the UK/Europe, Panama, and other parts of Latin America


IB Economics is designed for motivated students with strong skills in analysis, quantification, evaluation, and social science. This course focuses on the sociological, governmental, and behavioral aspects of what it means to make decisions. It is not a business course. The goal of the course is to provide students with an understanding of how individuals, organizations, societies and nations address the problem of infinite wants and finite resources. Students will develop an ability to evaluate economic theories, concepts, situations and data objectively. Students will be trained to think like an economist. The 4 units cover Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, International Economics, and Development. The IA is based on economic analysis of current events. HL students will be expected to complete an additional 90 hours covering the Theory of the Firm and other advanced topics such as the Phillips Curve, Marshall-Lerner Condition, as well as applying algebraic equations and calculations to economic information.
