As a former high school Spanish teacher and coordinator of Mississippi State University’s world language education program, I consistently strive to improve my practice, collaborate with world language educators across the globe, and advocate for quality language programs for all learners. Currently as the co-coordinator of the basic language program at Mississippi State University and the trainer of graduate teaching assistants in the department, I work daily to affect the practice of those at the university and educators in the community. I am honored to be considered for such an esteemed award and to be recognized by wonderful Mississippi teachers who continue to make me proud to be from our state.
