Our Staff

All Pulaski International School of Chicago teachers are of the highest caliber. Teaching in Chicago, in a community-supported IB World School authorized program is an attractive prospect which is not open to many Chicago Public School teachers. This has enabled Pulaski to be highly selective in offering teaching positions to the most experienced, highly qualified and committed of teachers. Teachers are supported by a dedicated team of educational leaders and staff.
