A Spanish lecturer at Trine University in Angola has received her second major honor in as many months. Ana Boman has been named the 2019 Indiana Foreign Language Teacher of the Year.
The award was presented by the Indiana Foreign Language Teachers Association, which honors the top teacher from the state representing all foreign languages. Last month, Boman was named the inaugural Indiana Outstanding Spanish Teacher of the Year by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese.
"I am very appreciative of these awards, and I am very proud to represent our university in the field of foreign language teaching," Boman said. "I could not have done this without the leadership of Dr. Brooks, and the continuing support from Dr. Shannon, Dr. Franzen and Dr. Goddard. I also feel fortunate to educate our wonderful students."
The awards from the IFTLA and the AATSP were from the collegiate and university divisions, respectively.
