The spring semester isn’t over but one educator’s summer is sure to be busy. Angela Hall-Hector will travel this summer to Las Vegas and Toronto.
Hall-Hector is the International Baccalaureate coordinator at Eisenhower Ninth Grade School. The campus offers students the rigorous IB Middle Years Program.
Each year, the IB Conference of the Americas Planning Committee selects proposals for presentation. The Committee recently announced that it selected Hall-Hector’s proposal. She will present at the International Baccalaureate (IB) of the Americas Conference. The conference is set for July 14-17 in Toronto, Canada.
LaTonia Amerson is proud of Hall-Hector. The campus principal will go with Hall-Hector to Toronto to give the presentation.
“This is an awesome honor,” said Amerson. “I am proud of Mrs. Hall-Hector.”
The duo will present A World, A Nation, A Community: Building a Sense of Community. They will share how the campus leadership and staff implement the schoolwide community project.
The conference planning committee received an unprecedented number of proposals this year. The Committee felt Hall-Hector’s presentation will enrich the professional development experience of conference attendees.
Conference attendees will have the opportunity to meet and collaborate. IB educators will come from across North, Central, South America and the world.
Amerson and Hall-Hector will discover new ideas to further develop their IB program. They will learn from IB practitioners and reflect on their program. The featured speakers and presenters will inspire them with ideas to bring back to the campus.
Before heading to Toronto, Hall-Hector will go to Las Vegas in June. The IB Educator Network (IBEN) has invited Hall-Hector to work with them. The IBEN ensures that the IB provides a high-quality experience in classrooms and schools. Educators in the network can become workshop leaders, examiners, curriculum developers and consultant visitors.
The regional office for the Americas manages the training. The various roles are managed within global guidelines. There are many School Services roles in the Americas. For each role, educators can work with schools implementing each of the four IB programs. The IB has roles for readers, school visits team members and school visits team leaders.
Hall-Hector will undergo training as a School Visit Team Member and a Workshop Leader.
She is looking forward to the opportunity the IBEN provides.
“At Ike Ninth we are working to move our IB program forward,” said Hall-Hector. “The goal is to improve our practices and provide a high-quality IB education.”
Hall-Hector will also serve in a statewide capacity. She has been elected to the Board of Directors for Texas IB Schools (TIBS). Hall-Hector will serve to support the general improvement of IB education for students. She will serve a three-year term.
The International Baccalaureate® has programs for students aged three to 19. Aldine ISD offers the Primary Years Program, Middle Years Program and Diploma Program.
There are more than 4,000 schools around the world that teach IB programs. Those schools employ more than 70,000 educators, teaching more than one million students worldwide.
The unique academic rigor and emphasis on students’ personal development has made IB popular. Texas has one of the highest concentrations of IB World Schools in the world.
“I’m humbled and grateful for the opportunity to join the TIBS Board,” said Hall-Hector. “I hope to bring continuity and uphold the the IBO’s standards of performance. I hope to facilitate quality program development. The main goal is to ensure the IB programs benefit Texas schools and students.”
