It is an honor to be chosen as the SCOLT 2021 Educator of Excellence. As an instructor, formerly in Alabama and currently in North Carolina, I consistently strive to improve my practice, collaborate with world language educators across the globe, and advocate for quality language programs for all learners. As a lifelong learner I make it a priority to attend language teacher conferences, not only to share my knowledge but also to keep a fresh perspective on my own teaching. Another way I continue to keep learning and sharing is through producing and co-hosting a weekly podcast about language teaching. I am honored to receive such an prestigious award and to be recognized by esteemed colleagues who continue to inspire me and make me proud to be a language educator.
The Educator of Excellence Award for Post-Secondary Educators, formerly known as the Teacher of Excellence Award, recognizes educators at the community college, college, and university level who have demonstrated excellence in language teaching, active participation in SCOLT, and leadership and advocacy at the local, state, and/or regional or national level. The nominating documents for this award include a letter of nomination, a statement from nominee of acceptance of nomination (paragraph), a CV/Resume, and two letters of support.
Nominate a colleague for the 2021 Educator of Excellence Award! Deadline for applications is January 15, 2022.
