18 Nov 2021 ISKL’s High School Music faculty, Jaymin Baird, wins the ‘Outstanding Educator Award’ by the University of Chicago
Congratulations to The International School of Kuala Lumpur (ISKL)’s High School (HS) Music faculty Jaymin Baird for winning the University of Chicago’s (UoC) ‘Outstanding Educator Award’!
Students were given the opportunity to nominate the educators who have made a difference in their lives, and it is no surprise that Jaymin was chosen for the positive impact on ISKL’s students. From serving as one of the Music teacher advisors for the HS Club Tri-M – an International Music Honor Society, organizing the yearly Jazz Night concert, and the entertaining Virtual Virtuosos movement where 150 videos made by students and alumni were part of the global event ‘Call to Unite’, Jaymin showcased how educators can go beyond everyday teaching to leave a lasting impression to their students.
Great teachers can change the lives of their students in many ways, and Jaymin has done so for not only her amazing Music students here at ISKL but also to all of us who were inspired by the music she has created with students.
