Bob Roy

Alpine Elementary IB World School/STEM
Spanish and GT Teacher
Longmont, CO
Bob (“Señor”) Roy's B.A. in International Affairs and Spanish from the University of Nebraska included a semester abroad at the Universidad de Costa Rica. After college, he interned at the Washington Office on Latin America and then worked as a bilingual researcher at the Library of Congress’s Columbus Quincentenary Program, which commemorated the 500th anniversary of Christopher Columbus’s first encounter with the Americas through publications and a major exhibition, "1492: An Ongoing Voyage." In DC, Bob met his wife, Ana, and eventually moved to Ana’s home town, Nicoya, Costa Rica. For five years he taught English to Costa Rican students of all ages. Bob and his family moved to Longmont in 1999. He joined the Alpine faculty in 2009 after ten years in Advertising at the Times-Call newspaper. This year, Bob successfully integrated Duolingo for Schools into his Spanish classroom and finds ways for his GT students to apply technology to their projects. Bob enjoys travel, gardening, creative food and drink, politics, and thoughtful conversation.
