Education Perspectives is proud to welcome Jayme Gill to the podcast She is theInternational Baccalaureate Coordinatorat Tates Creek Middle School in Lexington. Jayme moved to Kentucky in 2000 to attend Transylvania University and graduated with a degree in French Language & Literature. She then went on to complete a Masters in Teaching World Languages from the University of Kentucky, despite growing up swearing she would never be a teacher! Jayme thought she would move away after Transy and maybe work as an interpreter or travel the world as a tour guide...but then she met someone. Jayme has a lovely husband and twin boys who keep her more than busy at home. They love travel, boating, fishing, and anything outside! Jayme student-taught at Tates Creek Middle and this is now in her 16th year working there. She taught French for 14 years at Creek, but when the International Baccalaureate Programme Coordinator position opened up, she couldn't resist. Jayme truly believes in what the programme can bring their students, families, teachers, and community!
