Walter Sorensen, Alcuin Head of School, welcomed top education leaders from across Texas and abroad at a special Texas IB Schools (TIBS) conference held at the Dallas/FortWorth Airport Marriott on Feb. 11. TIBS hosted distinguished leaders including board members, superintendents/heads of school, deputy superintendent, associate superintendents, assistant superintendents and directors from public and private education. Sorensen and Margaret Davis, Alcuin Director of the International Baccalaureate, participated in the planning of the event.
The leaders learned about the impact of International Baccalaureate Organization® programs from Ian Chambers, Global Head of Development for the International Baccalaureate® Organization The Hague, Netherlands and Mr. Paul Campbell, Head of Regional Development Americas for the International Baccalaureate® Bethesda, Maryland.
Leaders had an opportunity to explore why more than 4,000 schools across all regions of the world have chosen to teach International Baccalaureate® (IB) programmes, with their unique academic rigor and their emphasis on students’ personal development. Those schools employ over 70,000 educators, teaching more than one million students worldwide.
