KORCOS18 IEC has ended
We are here: Compassion, Creativity, Change.  

Let’s come together as a community of educators to reflect, grow and connect, empowering each other to create change agents for tomorrow.  What does it mean to be compassionate? What does it mean to be innovative? What does it mean to teach? To learn? To care?

We can’t wait to host you at GSIS for the Korea Council of Overseas Schools International Educators’ Conference 2018 (#KORCOSIEC18).  We are excited to make connections with the vision to create a better tomorrow.  That begins with the idea of a "We" being in the moment together, with the commitment to be our best selves for our students.  

Let’s do this.

**All speaker sessions are now FULL! Please select the sessions you wish to join and get ready for Nov.17! It’s about to happen! **

Emily Hatch

ES Music Teacher

Emily Hatch believes that music is an instrument to educate students’ hearts and minds to engage an interconnected world.  Emily’s elementary school students create, perform, and respond to music while they develop 21st century skills of communication, collaboration, and critical thinking.

Currently in her 11th year of teaching, Emily  teaches Preschool - G5 music at Daegu Elementary School, a Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) school in South Korea.  Emily is a teacher leader at the school, serving for the past three years as the Continuous School Improvement (CSI) Chair and Grade Level Chair for the specialist department.  As the CSI Chair, Emily successfully led the school through two accreditation cycles and was pivotal in developing and facilitating a clear purpose statement and reading goal for the school.  

Emily is also a leader in the music field and an early adopter of the National Core Arts Standards (NCAS) which were released in 2014, serving on a national team of teachers who piloted Model Cornerstone Assessments for grades 2 and 5 over a period of two school years.  She was also a member of the FEA/DoDEA Fine Arts Cohort, planning and facilitating professional development on the new standards for all DoDEA Fine Arts teachers.  She reimagined her music curriculum to teach global education through the NCAS.

Emily Hatch is a lifelong learner and is a 2018 NEA Global Learning Fellow, studying global education with a cohort of teachers from across America.
