For Shauna Fitzmahan, Head of Upper School Social Studies, "Teaching TOK Is a Dream Come True"

Shauna Fitzmahan puts the "international" in International Baccalaureate — she's lived on four different continents! As the Head of Upper School Social Studies and a passionate Theory of Knowledge (TOK) teacher, Ms. Fitzmahan illuminates for students that learning can often bring more questions than answers. We sat down with her to discover more about her experiences and how TOK connects the classroom to the greater world.
