Dr. Michael D. Aeschliman

TASIS The American School in Switzerland: Chairman of the Board, 26 Mar 2008 [cached]
In 1984, Mrs. Aeschliman, with her professor/writer husband Dr. Michael D. Aeschliman and their two children, moved to Charlottesville, Virginia, where Dr. Aeschliman taught at the University of Virginia.
Having done a lot of renovation in Europe, especially for TASIS, Mrs. Aeschliman started her own architectural-renovation business in Virginia, dismantling, moving, and rebuilding early Virginian houses. She also served as President of the Board of a parent-run country-day school near Charlottesville.
In 1993-4, the Aeschlimans spent a year in Provence so their children could learn French; then the family moved to Lausanne, Switzerland, where they opened Erasmus Institute, a residential-college program. During the four summers between 1990 and 1994, Mrs. Aeschliman started and ran a bilingual, ecumenical Christian, environmental summer program - Young Pilgrims in Switzerland, then in France.
In 1996, Mrs. Aeschliman took over leadership of the TASIS Schools as Executive Director. Then in 2005, as the Fleming family completed the donation of all the TASIS Schools and campuses to the TASIS Foundation, a Swiss non-profit educational foundation, Mrs. Aeschliman became Chairman of the newly-established Board of Directors, as well as Vice Chairman of the Foundation. She serves on the Board of Directors of TASIS England as well. In 2005, Mrs. Aeschliman also founded the very successful TASIS Elementary School, the first and only English-language elementary school in Ticino.
In addition to founding Tuscan Classical Academy for architects and painters in 2004, Mrs. Aeschliman's keen interest and expertise in architecture has aided her in helping to conceive, along with Master Architect David Mayernik, and execute, building-by-building, the realization of the TASIS Global Village Master Plan.
Living such a full, varied, and rich life has given Mrs. Aeschliman plenty of challenges, and has equipped her well for the large responsibility of guiding the TASIS Organization in the 21st century.

Jay just came back from spending time with Mickey and Minnie and the gang in Florida. He also announced that three of our members are going to receive awards at the Chelsea All city awards on November 15, 2010.
Our guest speaker was Michael Aeschliman, who is a good friend of Pres. Tom.
Michael has been a teacher at Boston University but is currently, living in Switzerland and Italy and teaching educational policy issues. He spoke of the similarities of European schools and the Chelsea school system. The both have language, huge immigration, and mobility of student issues. He was very interested in the Chelsea-Boston Univesity partnership and mentioned two great books that the Rotarians might find very interesting.
The second is the History of the Boston Public Schools by Joseph Cronin, who was a mentor of Michael and Tom.
