Please join us in welcoming Daryl Boeckers to the LT academic staff! Daryl will be serving as an LT instructor as well as the initial licensure teacher education coordinator for LT. Trained as a second language teacher, he draws from 15 years experience in the public school classroom. His passion to integrate technology purposefully to enhance the learner experience led him to design award-winning hybrid curricula. He has published workshop handbooks for the Bureau of Education, and research as a national presenter and educational consultant. Daryl recently received the Emma Birkmaier Outstanding Language Educator Award at the Minnesota Council on the Teaching of Languages and Cultures conference for his contributions to the field of second languages and cultures. Outside the classroom, workshops, and conferences, Daryl enjoys attempting to perfect favorite pasta recipes in the kitchen for friends and family. We’re very excited to have him on staff!
