IB: Full Steam Ahead at Meridian

The April 16 parent meeting focused on the IB Continuum. Ann Wink, retired IB America’s development specialist and current Texas IB Schools’ (TIBS) advisor, delivered a presentation on the IB Continuum. Ms. Wink, who has worked with or visited hundreds of IB schools, stated that Meridian does a remarkable job of offering IB programs with true fidelity. She also said that she has never seen an IB school with only four years of existence exceeding the IB standards and practices. Wink credits this to the founders unwavering commitment to IB, the administrators expertise with IB, the dedicated teachers, the highly motivated students, and the supportive parents.

Head of School, Rick Fernández, surprised the audience by presenting TIBS scholarships for the IB World Student Conference at La Salle – Ramon Llull University in Barcelona, Spain. Colton Bolton, Makenna Brandt, and Katie Neighbors were awarded scholarships that include registration, lodging, and meals. Gabrielle Lewis was awarded an all-expense paid scholarship. Texas IB Schools awarded a total of 11 scholarships and Meridian received four. Gabrielle was the only Texas student to receive a full ride to the Barcelona conference. The theme for the seven-day conference is “Technology in a Global Society.”

Fernández also announced that Elizabeth Petty, 3rd Grade teacher, earned an all-expense paid trip to the IB Academy. The IB Academy is a very competitive opportunity for IB educators to be trained as official IB Organization trainers, consultants, and school authorization visitors. After Ms. Petty’s training, she will join the ranks of Kelly McBride, Leah Delafield, Charles Ryder, and Rick Fernández as official IB Organization trainers.

On April 26, Meridian School was informed that Mr. Mark Rogers, secondary math and IB Theory of Knowledge teacher, is the recipient of the 2015 TIBS Innovative Teaching Award. The award will allow Meridian to purchase an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). Rogers’ project will encourage students to fly a UAV, and experience the thrill of new technology while analyzing multi-tiered mathematical problems, understanding the art behind high-altitude perspective, and debating the privacy concerns inherent of this cutting-edge machine.
