2018 West Virginia Outstanding Foreign Language Teacher Awards

We are now accepting nominations for the 2018 West Virginia Foreign Language Teacher Association Outstanding Teacher Awards

This year we have streamlined the process. Attached you will find a simple, two-page nomination form to nominate that colleague or teacher. The deadline for nominations is April 10, 2018. As soon as we have your nomination, we will send the application packet to the candidate.

Please note these important steps:

  1. Nominations- Please fill out, save and send the nomination sheet attached in this e-mail to Blanca Skaggs (bskaggs@k12.wv.us) and Anna Megyesi (amegyesi@k12.wv.us) by no later than April 10, 2018. The earlier you send in your nomination, the more time the candidate will have to prepare his/her application!
  2. Outstanding K12 and Outstanding Higher Education Teacher- This year you may use the nomination form to nominate an individual for either or BOTH of these awards. Candidates will be responsible for filling out separate applications if they are eligible for both.
  3. Outreach- This listserv goes to many World Language teachers in our state. We have also asked for the award to be publicized in the WVDE State Superintendent newsletter. We ask for your help in spreading the word to your principals, administrators, teachers and students.
  4. Persons nominated last year will be eligible for the award but we must have your 2018-2019 nomination form in order to contact that person to update any application material.

Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you very soon!
