Amber Faske, IB PYP Coordinator
Hello! I am so excited to be working with the learning community of Roscoe Wilson as we implement the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme! I am entering my 20th year of education and could not be more blessed to support something I am so passionate about. Previously I have worked as a literacy coach and also taught almost every grade level in elementary, in self-contained, departmentalized, and dual language classrooms, all over the state of Texas.
My role as the coordinator is to help Roscoe Wilson be our best IB selves. I serve the teachers in their classrooms through professional development and instructional coaching. I work closely with our fabulous leadership to provide input on decisions that steer our school toward deeper IB implementation and understanding. Occaisionally I get the special opportunity to teach lesson in a classroom and work with students. This year I'm expanding my work with parents in bringing them in to the IB conversation and support their understandings of the PYP. I also get the privilege of being a point of contact to our greater learning community and connect Roscoe locally and globally to other IB schools. It's a role of many hats, and I love every one of them!
I actually started my journey with the IB as a parent! All of my personal kids have been in IB schools during their education. My sweet "little" family consists of my wonderful husband, Jacob, and four children that bless my world everyday. Isaac is a senior at Coronado High School, Judah is a sophomore at Coronado High School, Noah is in 7th grade at McCool Academy, and Joy started kindergarten this year as a Wrangler! We spend a lot of time on the tennis court and in band and orchestra concerts!
I hope you will reach out and allow me the privilege to introduce myself. Please know that my door is always open if you ever have questions.
