Take a moment to view this tribute to Robert J. Ludwig, which was presented during the Annual Awards Banquet on October 16, 2011.


It is with great enthusiasm that I welcome you to the 94th NYSAFLT Annual Conference: “Best of Language Learning: People, Programs, and Practices that Inspire”.

When I joined NYSAFLT over ten years ago and attended my first Annual Conference, I knew that this was an organization of excellence. For 94 years, NYSAFLT Annual Conferences have offered attendees cutting-edge workshops that teach, challenge and inspire each of us to grow and improve our craft. As NYSAFLT members, we are fortunate to be part of this dedicated group of teachers who continually seek opportunities to learn from each other.

Once again, we gather together, this year to embrace the theme: "Best of Language Learning: People, Programs, and Practices that Inspire". Our friends and colleagues will be there and we are thrilled to welcome our keynote speaker, Maryann Woods-Murphy, 2010 NECTFL Teacher of the Year and New Jersey Teacher of the Year 2009-10. Maryann is sure to inspire us with her views on diversity, cross-cultural skills and practices that engage our 21st century learners.

I invite all of you to be a part of NYSAFLT's 94th Annual Conference and to truly be inspired by your very own colleagues from around the state. See you in Rochester!
