Ropes Independent School District, Alumni of the Month

AlumniAlexTorrezAlex Elias Torrez, Ph.D. was named Pflugerville ISD’s Superintendent of Schools on Sept. 30, 2013.
At the core of Dr. Torrez’s educational philosophy is the belief that all students deserve an exceptional education. Dr. Torrez believes that every student is an individual and all educators have the responsibility to meet each student at their developmental level and provide differentiated instruction to accommodate all learning styles, abilities and interests.

“I believe that the teaching profession has evolved and that as educators we must embrace our changing roles,” Dr. Torrez said. “To be an educator in today’s society, you must not only be an instructor of content, but it is essential to be a leader, a mentor, a counselor and a champion for relevant meaningful learning.”

Dr. Torrez is a committed educator who is also very involved in a variety of national, state and local organizations. He currently serves on the United Providence National Advisory Board, the Prairie View A&M University Education Advisory Council and Longhorn Project Executive Board.

Kirk LewisWell deserved. I met Alex at a meeting involving the Pasadena district and the Clear Creek district. We sat beside each other and made small talk about where we were from. I told him I was from a small town near Lubbock. He laughed and said, "I am, too." I said you've probably never heard of Ropesville. He laughed and told me he grew up there. We had a great conversation about our past and our love for Ropes and its people. He's a good guy.
