VFLA Distinguished Teacher Award

Each year the Vermont Foreign Language Association seeks to honor an outstanding world language teacher in the state. We will announce the winner of the VFLA Distinguished Teacher Award at the annual conference on March 13, 2020 at the Capitol Plaza Hotel in Montpelier, VT. The winner can then elect to submit a portfolio for the NECTFL Teacher of the Year. Principals, teachers, parents, or community members are invited to nominate a teacher for the VFLA Distinguished Teacher Award.

The VFLA presents the Distinguished Teacher Award to a foreign language teacher who:

  • is innovative and creative in the classroom
  • reflects on his/her practice and strives for professional growth
  • inspires and encourages students to become active global citizens
  • shares expertise with colleagues
  • exceeds professional expectations

Please fill out this form on or before February 1st, 2020.
