Founder

I am honored to be the 2019-20 OFLTA President and am proud to be a member of such an important organization run by passionate language teachers who have been working to support our profession for sixty years. One of OFLTA’s main goals is to provide exposure to new methods, ideas, and practices by offering invaluable professional development from outstanding teachers statewide and guest presenters who are at the forefront of the language teaching profession nationwide, and I myself have greatly benefited from this.  I have been a French teacher at Casady School in Oklahoma City for twenty-five years and just recently through OFLTA learned a new way of teaching that has given a second life to my career, enriching both my professional life and the learning experience of my students. Another thing that makes OFLTA great is the opportunity it provides to form friendships with colleagues across the state, to share experiences, frustrations, ideas, and aspirations. Teaching can be a lonely profession and language teachers especially can find themselves without peers with whom they can collaborate or share ideas.  Come join us!
Join OFLTA to become a member of this important community of language educators.
