Sonia Henderson

Professional Development (DP Psychology and DP TOK)

Sonia Henderson is a passionate IB educator and examiner who fully embraces the ethos of the IB. Having begun her teaching career in the UK, moving overseas to teach in international schools opened her eyes to the true value of the IB Diploma Programmes. She enjoys sharing her subject expertise and experience with curriculum planning and examining with other educators. Having taught IB Psychology and Theory of Knowledge for over 10 years, and examining in both subjects, she is fully familiar with the common concerns and questions both teachers and students have and she has many helpful tips and ideas for best practice to share. Sonia's IB Psychology and TOK results are consistently significantly above the IB world average and she credits this due to her students having sound subject knowledge and understanding and also a clear understanding of how they will be assessed. Sonia hopes that by working with other IB educators she is able to increase their confidence with delivering the curriculum and ultimately help more students feel better prepared for their assessments.

Our Mission:

To empower educators with meaningful data and pedagogy to increase performance and equitable participation in advanced academic programs.

Our Beliefs:

  • The more students who can access the IB curriculum the better.
  • There is no correlation between increased student participation and scores.
  • In order for students and teachers to feel they can tackle the rigor of an IB course, teachers (and coordinators) must understand how the different components interact to produce an IB score of 1-7.
  • Teachers must then use this increased understanding component data to create an assessment model that will be predictive of an IB score.
