Nick Chignall is the Elementary Vice-Principal at the International School of Macao. He strives to have students develop socially, emotionally, cognitively, and physically through inquiry learning and views children as confident, capable, and active learners. Nick believes a school is first and foremost a community of teachers, staff, and families that work collaboratively to provide the best possible environment for our children to grow and succeed. He believes that it is important for children to see themselves as part of a larger community and think about how their relationships and actions affect themselves, their community, and the world. Nick completed his Bachelor of Education from the University of Toronto and has a Masters of Education in School Leadership and Administration from UNB as well as a Masters of Early Childhood Education from UBC. His areas of interest in education are culturally responsive teaching and how our context shapes community relationships and educational expectations.
