Pueblo City Schools Educators Receive State Awards

Two Pueblo City Schools educators are being recognized with statewide awards. South High School Spanish teacher Judy Roybal is the Colorado Congress of Foreign Language Teachers (CCFLT) Teacher of the Year. District foreign language curriculum coordinator Dagmar Haney has been selected to receive the Genevieve Overman Memorial Service Award.

Roybal, a 33-year educator, was nominated by her department peers. Their nomination noted that Roybal creativity has helped students prepare for a diverse and global society, her vast experience has provided colleagues with professional development, and leading by example she has had a positive impact on people of all ages. Roybal, who has taught at South High School for 26 years, teaches five classes at the Spanish I, II and Honors III (i.e., freshmen) levels. She has a BA degree in Spanish and a Masters, both from Adams State College. The Teacher of the Year award is presented to a world language educator who has excelled in classroom instruction.

Haney, a retired German teacher from Centennial High School, was selected for the Genevieve Overman Memorial Service Award. The award is presented to an individual for dedicated and sustained service to the world language teaching profession, commitment and leadership in serving CCFLT. Overman, who served as the first CCFLT executive secretary, not only had a long career as a teacher and supervisor, but continues to serve the profession for almost a decade after retirement. Each year the CCFLT board selects an outstanding member to receive this prestigious award. Haney was selected because of her many years of dedication to the classroom and continuous active involvement with world languages at the state and local level.
The CCFLT is organized for the purpose of the advancement of the study and teaching of foreign languages in the schools, colleges and universities of Colorado.

This is the second consecutive year that a Pueblo City Schools teacher has won a statewide award. Last year, Central High School Italian and French language teacher Donna Stutzman received the Teacher of the Year award. Roybal and Haney will receive their awards at the 46th Annual CCFLT Conference, Feb. 14, 2008, in Denver.
