IFLTA World Language Teacher of the Year
Lisa Calvin, associate professor of Spanish at Indiana State University, has been recognized as the state’s finest college-level language teacher by the Indiana Foreign Language Teachers Association, according to a news release from ISU.
Calvin received the 2006 Collegiate-Level World Language Teacher of the Year Award from the IFLTA, which has a membership of 630 foreign language teachers, at its annual conference in Indianapolis, ISU reports.
Calvin became eligible for this award after the Indiana chapter of the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese named her the 2006 Teacher of the Year-University Level this summer. As a recipient of that award, she was asked to submit a portfolio, including essays and letters from colleagues and former students, to be considered for the IFLTA’s coveted Teacher of the Year honor.
The Nationalities Council also sends its congratulations to Prof. Calvin!
