Have you worked with a language teacher who you were inspired by? Have you attended an IWLA conference session by someone that amazed you? Do you have a go-to person when you have a language question? Has someone directed you to someone to help you with a new idea, research-based concept, or cutting-edge approach? Want to pay this person a sign of appreciation?
