Today was the Utah Foreign Language Association's annual conference at Utah Valley University. I was given the honor of being named the Utah Foreign Language teacher of the year!
It was a great day! My colleagues and I learned some awesome new ideas for teaching foreign language. I got to present 2 workshops. That's a blast but it's exhausting:)
My wonderful principal, Mr. Shaw, came to present the award. He said "I don't want some 'stranger' presenting the award to you." He's the best principal I've ever worked with!
In April, Jason, Michal and I will go to Fort Worth, Texas for the Southwest regional conference where I will be the nominee from Utah for the Southwest award. If I am named the regional teacher of the year, I'll go to the national conference next year and be a nominee for that award.
This is a ton of fun! I'm so honored! Nobody gets to a place like this in their life without the help and collaboration of a lot of other people.
