In 2010 I started a new series to showcase the amazing work of some Literacy and Language Professionals who Lead by Example. Last year, I featured the work of 6 amazing educators in Canada and the United States, whose work focused on:
- Literacy, ESL literacy and Deaf literacy
- American Sign Language
I encourage you to check out their profiles and see the difference these people make to our profession:
Cheryl Haga (USA: French, Mandarin and Spanish)
Brent Novodvorski (Canada: American Sign Language (ASL), English as a Second Language (ESL), Deaf Literacy)
Paul Rogers (USA: ESL)
Martha Urquhart (Canada: Literacy, ESL Literacy)
Meike Thomsen (Canada: German, German-English bilingual education)
Felix Wöhler (Canada: English as a Second Language)
I’m now looking for suggestions for the 2011 series.
Here are the criteria I use for the series:
- Literacy or language professionals should have practical classroom experience.
- Their daily practice sets them apart as people who lead by example.
- Their work inspires you and will likely inspire others.
Send me an e-mail at saraheaton2001 (at) yahoo.ca to nominate someone today. (I prefer nominations of others to self-nominations.)
