Stephanie Bilimo­ria is welcomed as the new Inter­na­tional Baccalau­re­ate (IB) Coor­di­na­tor at Justice High School. Bilimo­ria is from Michi­gan and didn’t learn about the IB program until she moved to Wash­ing­ton D.C. where she worked as an intern at Lewis High School, which offers the curricu­lum. The follow­ing year, she was employed there as an IB Biol­ogy teacher. She taught for 19 years at Lewis before taking on the role of IB coor­di­na­tor for an addi­tional 9 years. 

Due to an IB Coor­di­na­tor posi­tion open­ing at Justice, Bilimo­ria moved to Justice. She advises fresh­men and sopho­more students who are inter­ested in the IB program but unsure of where to begin to take classes that suit them. “Take a class in your strength. Take the class that you feel most confi­dent in.”

Bilimo­ria also gives coun­sel for students who are inter­ested in taking an IB class, but not neces­sar­ily complet­ing the IB Diploma. “If you’re going to explore an IB class, usually do it in your inter­est. So if you know that art is your thing, take the IB art class. If you love math, take an IB math class, even an A in one IB class can make a huge difference.”
