Michael Roemer, Ph.D., director of the Global Initiatives Program at Trinity Valley School in Fort Worth has been awarded the 2017 International Educator of the Year Award by the World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth.

The program started in 2011 to prepare students to become globally-connected, conscientious citizens and leaders through virtual and in-person exchanges, the school’s website said. “Our program equips our students with the essential global competencies and life skills of self-awareness, empathy, cross-cultural communication and cross-cultural understanding,” the website said.

Roemer said in a World Affairs Council news release that the K-12th grade program “has connected our community with students, educators, and other leaders from more than 50 nations on all seven continents. The program makes the world a classroom – for me, for our students, and for our teachers.”

Roemer administers the program and teaches high school elective classes – Religion in Culture, Service Learning, and Global Leadership – and, in middle school, a class titled “The World Peace Game.”

The award was presented at a Council luncheon Tuesday at the Hyatt Regency Dallas.

Roemer joined the Trinity Valley faculty in 2011. He graduated from Connecticut College in New London, and earned both a master’s and a doctorate at the University of Texas at Austin.
