VFLA Distinguished Teacher Award

Each year the Vermont Foreign Language Association honors an outstanding world language teacher in the state. The Distinguished Teacher Award is presented to a 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

The awarded teacher 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.

We will announce the recipient of the VFLA Distinguished Teacher Award at our annual conference.

To nominate a teacher fill up this form before March 4th, 2022.
