Charlotte Kroeker (German Exchange Coordinator), Tony Tavares (Manitoba Education), and Andreas Meckes (ZfA German Consultant for Western Canada)

The Manitoba Teachers of German wish to say a sincere thank you and best wishes on a well earned retirement to Tony Tavares. Tony has a long job title:

“Consultant Diversity Education, EAL, and International Language at Manitoba Education and Early Childhood Learning and Curriculum Development and Implementation Unit at the Learning and Outcomes Branch.”

Tony’s job title has changed somewhat over the years, but his steadfast support of Manitoba Teachers of German over nearly four decades has not. He has been involved in overseeing a rewrite of the Manitoba German Curriculum and supporting Professional Development of German teachers. Tony has also helped to apply for Government grants to further MTG projects, such as the Manitoba-Germany Exchange Program. Students in Manitoba have benefitted from his work and we want to say “Danke”!
