Amber Faske, IB PYP Coordinator
Hello! I am so excited to be working with the learning community of Ramirez 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 Ramirez 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 to support their understandings of the PYP. I also get the privilege of being a point of contact to our greater learning community and connect Ramirez 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. 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.
