German Teacher Awards

German Teacher Awards

We are delighted to hear of not one, but two awards won by Ms. Dawn Piper (Head of German). Ms. Piper has won the East Midlands Teacher of the Year Award as well as a national prize for her contribution to German teaching.

Ms. Piper gets presented with the Peter Boaks award for German teaching

The Association for Language Learning gave Dawn the East Midlands Teacher of the Year Award earlier this year. Then on Monday 12th June, at the German Embassy in London, Dawn was presented with a national prize, the Peter Boaks award for her contribution to German teaching, not only in the classroom, but also organising networks of German teachers and promoting the subject across the region as well as in school. She was described as ‘an exceptional teacher at the start of her career’ and the award was presented by the German Ambassador and author John Le Carre.

Well done Ms. Piper!
