Congratulations to Dr. Carol Anne Costabile-Heming, Professor of German at the University of North Texas, who was named the 2018 Southern Conference on Language Teaching Educator of Excellence. According to the SCOLT press release, Dr. Costabile-Heming was recognized due to “the relationships that she establishes with her students and the opportunities she creates for them to connect with the German culture.” They note many of her accomplishments and service to the profession, including serving as President of AATG and the President of SCOLT, and fostering partnerships for language students and educators across the U.S. and Germany.
Dr. Costabile-Heming states, “I am honored and humbled to receive the 2018 SCOLT Educator of Excellence award. The best part of being a university language educator is the close bond that I am able to develop with my students, mentoring them to become proficient speakers of the language, pushing them to push themselves to experience the magic of study abroad, and watching their faces light up during those ‘ah ha’ moments.”
