HS IB Physics/IB Chemistry 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


Students are introduced to the laws of physics along with scientific methods and techniques which are needed for physics investigations. Student assessment is conducted both externally through written examination and internally by means of several required, as well as one self-designed, practical investigations. Such an investigation entails researching a scientific problem, writing an appropriate research question, collecting, processing and evaluating data both qualitatively and quantitatively, and drawing conclusions.


IB Chemistry will give students a broad and comprehensive experience in the experimental subject of Chemistry, a science based on the use of the scientific method to answer questions about the composition, structure and properties of all the things around them. Students will be required to explain chemical phenomena using precise language as well as quantitative descriptions. The course will also foster communication and cooperation amongst students in their scientific quests to better prepare them to be the future members of the greater international scientific community. Key Topics include Quantitative Chemistry, Atomic Structure, Periodicity, Bonding, Energetics, Kinetics, Equilibrium, Acids and Bases, Oxidation and Reduction, Organic Chemistry, and Human Biochemistry. Required skills include basic algebraic manipulations, scientific notation, database research, and generation of graphs in Microsoft Excel, independent planning and organization, basic laboratory safety skills.
