Education professor Mary Lynn Redmond received the Teacher of the Year Award, Higher Education, Friday, Oct. 3, at the annual conference of the Foreign Language Association of North Carolina (FLANC).

Each year, FLANC honors a teacher in grades K-12 and in higher education for excellence in teaching. The FLANC conference was held Oct. 2-4, 2014 in Winston-Salem, N.C. and was attended by more than 500 foreign language educators. Redmond served the organization as president in 1995-1997 and is a frequent presenter on topics related to best practices in instruction and on research in the field of world language education.

During this year’s conference, Redmond co-presented two sessions with alumni of Wake Forest’s MAEd program who are French and Spanish teachers, and she was a keynote speaker at the Saturday morning opening session.

Mary Lynn currently serves as President of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL).
