Last week, we were delighted to learn that Dr. Michael Roemer, TVS Director of Global Initiatives, was named the DFW World Affairs Council 2017 International Educator of the Year.

Last week, we were delighted to learn that Dr. Michael Roemer, TVS Director of Global Initiatives, was named the DFW World Affairs Council 2017 International Educator of the Year. On February 14, he will receive his award as part of the Council's "Learning to Lead in the New Washington and International Educator of the Year Luncheon". At that event, Dr. Roemer will speak for a few minutes about his journey with TVS and international education, and he and several TVS faculty and students will have the opportunity to hear Dr. Robert Gates (22nd U.S. Secretary of Defense) share some of his experiences working with eight presidents. 

The Mission for our Global Initiatives Program is to connect our students and faculty with people from around the world so that they can become globally-connected, conscientious citizens and leaders. This year alone, our programs have and will virtually connect (via Skype, blog, and video exchanges) almost 300 TVS students with approximately 200 students in England, Japan, Scotland, Spain, and Taiwan; French AP students have exchanged letters and audio files with students in France; 45 students will travel to Australia, Costa Rica, Peru, or Swaziland on TVS-led trips; 28 TVS families will host our 23 international visitors and 4 fulltime international students from Australia, China, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, South Korea, Sweden, and Switzerland; and dozens of TVS families will participate in our annual International Fair on March 30. It is not surprising to us for Dr. Roemer to be recognized for these and many other exchanges, lessons, and classes that he has coordinated, led, and taught. 

Congratulations, Dr. Roemer, and thank you for all you have done over the past 5 years to bring the world to the Trinity Valley School community!

A friend departs, inspiration is found, a long-distance connection is made, knowledge is shared, and online learning takes on new languages!

... Today is Madeleine Levy's last day at TVS--sorry to say. She was an International Assistant Teacher from Zürich, Switzerland who worked with our 7th and 8th grade students and teachers in math and art. Thank you, Madeleine, for sharing your knowledge and culture with us! And, we thank the Mandel family for opening their home to Madeleine this past month as a host family.

... Dr. Roemer and 2 Upper School students were inspired by Dr. Eboo Patel's comments about Interfaith Cooperation on Tuesday. Boy, can Dr. Patel tell stories with passion and persuasion!

... Dr. Roemer Skyped with students at our partner school in Mackay, Australia (Whitsunday Anglican School) after school on Tuesday (it was 8:30am Wednesday for them). The 8th graders asked him questions about US geography and demography.

... TVS Grandparent (and parent of 3 TVS alumni), Mrs. Sayeeda Selod, spoke with the "Religion in Culture" course students about growing up a Muslim in Texas and the U.S.

... Today, 6th grade Spanish students posted new comments in Spanish and English about their home towns, food, and vacations to share with friends in Campezo, Spain. ¡Muchas gracias, Sra. Hooker for encouraging your students to connect in multiple languages! Check out the blogs at:

His Excellency Ambassador Carlos Alzugaray Treto, Ph.D. (to the E.U., '94-'96) visited TVS Monday morning to tour our campus and talk with some of our students and faculty. Among other topics, he described Cuba's historical relations with several countries, and he shared his desire for us to develop personal connections with Cubans (and people of other countries) and to work towards positive and peaceful relationships.

Fort Worth Sister Cities International brought Ambassador Alzugaray to Fort Worth, and we were honored by his presence on our campus and grateful for the opportunity to talk with him.

Ambassador Alzugaray is currently a professor at Havana University and an Advisor for NEWCUBA Consulting. He is also the proud grandfather of several grandchildren (which is why he was so excited to take a picture with some of our 2nd graders).

Thank you, Ambassador Alzugaray and Fort Worth Sister Cities for this wonderful opportunity to connect with such an amazing person!
