It is our great honor to officially announce that Yensen Sierra Lambert has been named the 2022-2023 CT COLT Language Teacher of the Year. Yensen is the current Department Chair of World Languages at Greens Farms Academy in Westport, CT, where she teaches Spanish in the Upper School. In addition to teaching Spanish at the high school and university levels, Yensen has co-authored and contributed to several textbooks, and works for the College Board developing AP instructional materials. Her students, both current and former, praise her for encouraging them to "stretch" their learning by applying Spanish to a variety of experiences. We look forward to having her share more with our membership about her passion for developing proficiency and teaching in the target language.
