In September, our IB Film teacher, Michelle Briggs, came to me with an idea to attend an international student film competition in Paris. I laughed and said that sounded very fun and very expensive. She told me she thought we could do it. Ms. Briggs worked tirelessly for four months to make this trip a reality for our students. She persevered behind the scenes to secure almost $18,000 in donations so that 2 teams of students could travel to compete. So, today, here we are in Paris, France, competing with some of the best IB Film programs in the world. This unforgettable opportunity is the result of the passion, energy, and vision of one teacher. THIS is Woodrow IB—a group of dedicated professionals who are changing lives every day.
