Our 4th annual teacher appreciation dinner took place on the evening of December 15th at Town Kitchen & Bar in South Miami. All teachers in the German program were invited to join board members for an evening of enjoyment and conversation. The tradition allows for a casual and constructive interface among the participants and gives us a first hand opportunity to thank the teachers for all that they do to maintain the high quality of our program.
We also took that opportunity during this get together to honor one of our longest standing board members for nearly a decade of service. Jacqueline Duester was presented with an award commemorating her outstanding service to GIPA since 2008. We wish her and her family well as they look to relocate next year back to Germany.
