Winners of this award exemplify the best in world language teaching in addition to serving our profession in various capacities. Craig is the epitome of this award. His students write that, “teaching style, his creativity, attitude, and competence with teaching Spanish to all different grade levels is exceptional. There was never a day when myself and others weren’t excited to learn Spanish .... I volunteered to write this recommendation for him because I am very grateful for his contributions to my life as a student and world citizen”. Craig is a frequent presenter at the IWLA Conference, the CSCTFL Conference, and many others, too. He is the holder of a Best of Iowa award for an earlier presentation and he publishes many materials to help make language teaching easier for others.
