WYOMING/PAVILION Genesee Valley Educational Partnership (GVEP) teacher Elizabeth Slocum earned the Ferdinand DiBartolo New York State Distinguished Foreign Language Leadership Award this year.

Slocum is a teacher of French and Spanish at the middle, high school and undergraduate levels. Slocum holds permanent state certification in French and Spanish, as well as certification as a school district administrator and supervisor. She is a GVEP seventh- and eighth-grade Spanish teacher and serves both the Wyoming and Pavilion Central School districts.

Serving on the executive board of New York State Association of Foreign Language Teachers has been an incredible experience. It has been an honor to represent New York state teachers and students of world languages at the local, state and national levels, Slocum said. I teach because I believe that languages are at the heart of the human experience. Languages will open doors and make connections for our students at home and abroad.

As a 25-plus year member of New York State Association of Foreign Language Teachers (NYSAFLT), Slocum has been an active member of the association through her participation on various committees as well as serving on the NYSAFLT Board of Directors. She holds the distinction of chairing two annual conferences, including the 100th Annual Conference and Gala. She was selected to represent NYSAFLT at American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) inaugural Leadership Initiative for Language Learning (LILL) and remains an active member of LILL Cohort 1. She will participate in a LILL panel at ACTFL 2019 in Washington, DC on the topic of Growing Our Leadership.

In 2017, Slocum was honored by Genesee Community College with the Chancellors Award for Excellence as an Adjunct Instructor of World Languages. She works with the Genesee Region Teachers Center as a member of the Policy Board and coordinator of the regional World Language Teachers Network.

The Ferdinand DiBartolo NYS Distinguished Foreign Language Leadership Award is presented annually to the president of NYSAFLT in recognition of his/her dedication and service to our organization and to the profession.
