Ms. Daphne Draa, FIRST GRADE
My journey at CFI began in 2000 when CFI #2 opened at this New Jersey Avenue location. I love teaching at CFI. We enjoy making connections with a wide range of concepts and developing an international mindset. In my time at CFI I have served many roles: art teacher, design teacher, project coordinator, and now, 1st grade teacher! Beyond my roles at CFI, I also work for the IBO as a teacher leader. I lead workshops, consult, and help evaluate schools for authorization.
As much as I love teaching, I also love to learn. When we are not in school, I enjoy taking on new challenges, learning new skills and traveling. I especially love the outdoors (camping, hiking, kayaking, fishing) and creative play (a different way of saying ‘making art’-same process, just no pressure of an outcome).
