Internationella Engelska Gymnasiet was pleased to welcome Mary Georgis from The Ethel Walker School, Connecticut, on Tuesday.

Ms Georgis, who teaches History at what is one of the US's most outstanding independent day and boarding schools, spent the day talking to teachers and staff, participating in classes and generally getting to know the school.

Ms Georgis's visit was part of a trip to Europe where she is visiting a number of schools including IES Sundsvall to learn more about education outside the US.

"It is inspiring to meet educators who are highly professional and dedicated to the teaching profession like Ms Georgis," said IEGS principal Dr Benedikz.
