We’d like to share with you the USA report, our 7th stop over as part of “The Americas Together” Tour of Pedagooogy 3000 and emAne held during the month of September 2015. “The Americas Together” is covering 10 countries and 33 events. The goal is to unite South, Central and North America. This way we learn from each country and culture, and weave together an integral, pleasant, human, caring, enjoyable, and multicultural Education with Peace, respect, dialogue and connection to Mother Earth (Pacha Mama).
The US tour was mainly to make contacts. It has been lovely to meet people with the same vision and goals.
This Newsletter will cover:
1. San Antonio, Texas and the Anne Frank Inspire Academy
On Wednesday, September 2nd, we had to opportunity to be interviewed by Megan Bishop from WOAI, news radio from San Antonio. Then on Thursday, we were interviewed by Kayla from Univision and Jessica from Telemundo, both Spanish television stations. We thank the media who covered our visit to San Antonio where we kicked off the US portion of “The Americas Together” tour.
We are deeply grateful to Bruce Rockstroh, Superintendent and CEO of the Anne Frank Inspire Academy and Educational Resource Center. He was a magnificent host who went above and beyond the call of duty during our stay in San Antonio. The location of the school is: Anne Frank Inspire Academy – 11216 Bandera Rd. San Antonio, TX 78250

The Anne Frank Inspire Academy and Educational Resource Center. An amazing school!!
On Thursday, September 3 – We had an Introductory Conference.
Anne Frank Inspire Academy
I loved the school, and call it “the School of 2025”. The main features are:
- no walls
An example for the world! For a relevant and meaningful education.
The kids are free to move around the school. This school has a close link with the community; neighboring organizations support each other, such as the YMCA, so that the children can have access to a large gym. Among many activities, the children have string (violin), cooking, and robotic classes. There is a close connection to nature, with outside woods and pond available for students.
Bruce Rockstroh also works with several other schools in the San Antonio area where children in difficult situations attend – schools for youth in juvenile hall (detention center for minors) and schools for children whose mothers have been detained by immigration and are seeking asylum.
We are very impressed by all his wonderful work and tireless support of children, tomorrow’s future.
The school was conceived and built by the architect Prakash Nair, Fielding Nair International. The school has a lot of open space with a lot of natural light, open plazas and learning studios, multi-media studios, messy room, Da Vinci studio, conference room and a tree house, as well as comfortable furniture. Areas such as “the Nest” provide a quiet place for students to lounge and do some reading. There is a lot of space to circulate and conducive to team work with classmates. Students manage their own curricula with guidance from facilitators. Students feel so inspired that they stay after school to continue their projects; very active kids that practically have to be dragged out of school.
2. Denver, Colorado, and San Francisco, California
We held a small event on Saturday, September 5that the Sam Gary Denver Public Library.
We had the opportunity to learn about the Restorative Trauma Informed Practices developed by the East Bay Catholic Charities and being implemented in various schools in the Oakland and Richmond areas. This program was developed to work with youth, children and families to promote self-sufficiency, strengthen families and pursue safety and justice. It is a social service provided to children that are going through some type of trauma in schools, regardless of religious beliefs. Contact: Eric Steckel, Catholic Charity of the East Bay, http://www.cceb.org/our-services/restorative-trauma-informed-practices/
Another great program we learned about is the Positive Behavior Intervention System (PBIS) which is implemented at the Calpella Elementary School from the Ukiah Unified School District, 100 miles north of San Francisco. Other programs also implemented at this school include:
3. Visit to the HeartMath Institute, California
On Wednesday, September 9th, we had the chance to visit the HeartMath Institute located in Boulder Creek, south of San Francisco. Here we met with Dr. Rollin McCraty, Director of Research and Jeff Goelitz, Director of Education to discuss their activities and projects at the institute. They started the Global Coherence Initiative which is proving the relationship between the heart and the brain.
Geomagnetical fields are resonating frequencies overlapping with the heart. The HeartMath Institute offers many trainings so that people can self-regulate themselves and see, feel and activate the connection between mind and heart to create a healthy powerful electromagnetic field around them, resonating with the earth and others around them, creating a deep empathy to all beings.
4. Los Angeles, California and Mendez High School
We had a presentation on Friday, September 11, 2015 at Mendez High School located in Boyle Heights. We’d like to thank Mr. Mauro Bautista, Mendez High School Principal, for making the school accessible for the event.
We’d also like to congratulate him and the entire school for their accomplishments
How do they do this?
5. Meeting with Inge Bardor and Extra-ocular Vision
Inge is known in many counties for her extra-ocular ability (which is sensing and seeing things with closed eyes through ESP, extra-sensory perception) and her help with parents and children. She told us that: “Currently, from 15 to 20% of today’s small children are extremely aware with some psychic abilities and they need a new kind of education; their frequency is much higher, they are much more awake, they understand more things and faster, more technological and at the same time more intuitive, they need to be listened to”.
Videos of Inge
Noe Esperon, extra-ocular vision (Mexico)
I’d like mention the work of Noe Esperon in Mexico as well, a program called “Viendo por Mexico” (Seeing for Mexico). He works with extra-ocular vision (what Inge does but within the school system of Mexico). I am impressed with his work!! Please see the videos below on the work that Noe does:
Noe says that “ … all school children are learning faster with their Extra-Ocular Vision, experimenting the opportunity of an active education that will allow them to become entrepreneurs.” You can visit his webpage at www.viendopormexico.com

Emmy Pickler Method – Interview with Elsa, friend of Inge
The method of Emmy Pickler were implemented in orphanages for 80 years with great success.
