The primary goal of this initiative is to make Teachers of the Year available to provide professional development for other language teachers in their states who cannot get to conferences. The TOY award recognizes unique skills. This fund provides a practical way to share such skills.
The secondary goal – which is equally important – is to showcase our TOYs and provide leadership development for them. In addition it is designed to provide an opportunity for publicity and world language advocacy.
Grant funds are to be used to enable a State Teacher of the Year to provide Professional Development in schools or school districts in his/her state for one year from notification of funding. This can be in-person or virtual professional development. The SCOLT nominee for the ACTFL award can receive an extra year of eligibility. The TOY from one state can also be made available to a neighboring state if that state does not have a TOY for that year.
