EP. 26 – Community Insights #1 w/ Megan Highfill, Avinash Srinivas, Paul Ellison & Beren Gaston


When we put the call out to the MTIIS community for guests for a 'special start of year episode', we never imagined this response! 

Fourteen interviews later and we have an incredible wealth of insight from our community. Not one episode, but three!

In this first edition of MTIIS 'Community Insights', I speak with:

  • Megan Highfill: Elementary Music Teacher at Lincoln School, Nepal
  • Avinash Srinivas: Drums and Percussion Tutor at Stonehill International School, Bangalore
  • Paul Ellison: Director of Music at Dover Court International School, Singapore
  • Beren Gaston: PYP/MYP Music Teacher at the International School of Hannover Region

Each conversation explore the following three questions:

  1. What are you looking forward to most about the 2023/24 academic year as an international school music teacher?
  2. What is one new idea that you plan to implement in your teaching this academic year?  
  3. What makes a 'good' international school music teacher?

The responses are wide-ranging, nuanced, and filled with inspiring ideas and messages. Enjoy!
