Balance and the IB

Hard to believe it’s already been more than a month in Vienna. Although I’ve been out a few times, life has been for the most part subsumed with work. I’m not starting the music program from scratch, but it’s pretty damned close. And because it’s an IB school, and I’ve never worked at one before, there are very specific requirements, all of which I am learning from scratch. Without boring you with all the details, one thing the IB Learner Profile stresses is “Balanced” — that students should have a balanced life intellectually, physically, socially, emotionally. I am wondering if this applies to IB teachers, because I should be enjoying my free time way more than I have been able to do. Even so, a few photos from around the city.

Drinking Rotstürm, a cloudy fall wine, seasonal. It comes in white, too.
