Meet Our FLAVA 2022 Keynote Speaker, Annabelle Williamson aka La Maestra Loca

Annabelle Williamson was christened “La Maestra Loca” by her students long ago, but what she is really crazy about is building a positive, inclusive, success-oriented language community where every student feels seen, heard, valued, and empowered. Annabelle’s love of students, people, languages, and of life is contagious, while her deep understanding of the nuts and bolts of teaching for communicative competence will leave you eager and inspired to return to your classrooms and start implementing all of her strategies for equitable engagement! She’s currently in her 11th year as an educator, teaching  Spanish in New Orleans at Morris Jeff Community School. When she isn’t teaching, Annabelle leads professional development in her unique Professional Learning Community (PLC) where she supports teachers around the world while sharing resources in French, Spanish, and English. She’s dedicated to her “Familia Loca” where she provides WL Teachers a safe place to talk about the JOYS and frustrations they experience throughout the school year. Annabelle has presented Nationally and Internationally on Acquisition Driven Instruction and Proficiency Based Teaching. She is truly passionate about coaching and inspiring teachers!  This Queen of Brain Breaks was Louisiana’s Foreign Language Teacher of the Year in 2018. Annabelle has her Masters in Education with an emphasis in linguistically and culturally diverse education.
