Graciela Wilborn Teacher of the Year Award

The Graciela Wilborn Teacher of Year Award is awarded annually to a deserving foreign language teacher in North Dakota. Most commonly nominated by colleagues, these teachers excel at their profession and share the love of learning a language with their students and communities. Letters of recommendations for the teachers are easy to come by and those who are nominating find themselves trying to limit how many or who to ask, especially when trying to keep it a secret. The recipients are honored with a personal plaque from FLAND and their name is placed on a traveling award, which has filled up quickly. Those who nominate honor the recipient in an appropriate way with a small banquet or presentation sometimes at the school.
