GWATFL Teacher of the Year (ToY)
Each year, the Northeast Conference chooses its Teacher of the Year from among the candidates selected by the states in the Northeast region. This individual then represents our organization at the National Language Teacher of the Year competition at the ACTFL Conference in November. The award for the National Language Teacher of the Year is intended to elevate the status and the public profile of the language teaching profession at the state, regional and national levels by recognizing the individuals chosen for this award.
How to nominate a teacher and apply
The Northeast Conference will participate in the 2018 ACTFL Teacher of the Year competition. ACTFL requests that state associations choose a state Teacher of the Year during fall 2018. That person’s name and supporting documents (as described on the ACTFL website) should be submitted to NECTFL by January 4, 2019. In January, the NECTFL TOY Committee will review all state dossiers and choose a regional winner who will be announced as the 2018 Northeast Conference Teacher of the Year.
