2012 German Embassy Teacher of Excellence Award
This award recognizes up-and-coming German teachers, who may have received local recognition, but may not have received other accolades. Candidates may have started a new program or revitalized an existing one, should be considered outstanding teachers, and contribute to their local AATG chapter.
First granted in 2008, the award includes attendance at the AATG Annual Meeting in conjunction with ACTFL’s Annual Convention and World Languages Expo in Philadelphia from November 16-18, 2012 (registration, travel and lodging), and participation in a Goethe-Institut professional development course in Germany in summer 2013 (course fees, airfare, and room and board).
The American Association of Teachers of German will accept nomination suggestions from its regional chapters and additionally from schools identified by the Goethe-Instituts, the technical consultants of the Central Agency for Schools Abroad, and the Consulates General in the US until May 18, 2012.
