Ann F awardOur own CCSF ESL instructor and AFT 2121 Downtown Campus Precinct Representative Ann Fontanella received the International TESOL Teacher of the Year award, the highest honor given by this organization of 12,000 educators representing 156 countries. This award recognizes the exceptional work, service and dedication of outstanding ESOL instructors at all levels.

In conjunction with the award, presented in Portland, OR in late March, Ann gave a well-received presentation that described her work in developing and teaching courses that promote engagement and community leadership skills in her students.

Ann was also honored by Cambridge University Press at a dinner in which she was presented with a Wonder Woman crown and outfit. Ann is truly a Wonder Woman in her tireless commitment to her students and to the fight to keep City College open and accessible to our entire community. We’re inspired to have Ann’s positive energy, creativity, and enthusiasm, and pleased to see her so widely recognized.

Congratulations, Ann!image (1)
