Foreign Language Teacher of the Year Award Dinner Changed to May 12

May 1, 2007 – The District's Foreign Language Division in conjunction with the Virgin Islands Modern Foreign Language Association Inc. (VIMFLA) will present, for the first time, the Foreign Language Teacher of the Year Award to Gladys Collins. She will be recognized at a dinner reception from 6-8 p.m., on Saturday, May 12, at the Bolongo Beach Club's Lobster Grill.
This prestigious award, which reflects the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages' (ACTFL) National Foreign Languages Teacher of the Year Award, seeks to recognize excellent classroom teaching and to create opportunities for recognizing the most accomplished members of the foreign language teaching profession in our district, according to a press release from Superintendent for the St. Thomas-St. John District Lisa Hassel-Forde.
She will represent the district at the regional level through its affiliate, Southern Conference on Language Teaching, and if successful, will represent the district and region nationally at the ACTFL's National Foreign Language Teacher of the Year Award program.
The winner will serve as the district's foreign language ambassador over the course of the year. In addition, she will be expected to participate in ACTFL's National Foreign Language Teacher of the Year Award Program, if successful at the regional level.
