Bridget Hanlan, instructor at Devils Lake Adult Learning Center, received the North Dakota Association for Lifelong Learning (NDALL) award for Educator of the Year during the NDALL Fall Conference Sept. 29 in Bismarck.

The Educator of the Year Award is given to an individual who contributes significantly to the field of education, models professionalism, continues to upgrade educational skills and promotes education locally and statewide.

“Bridget is eager to work with students’ individual needs to help them to grow and succeed. She has demonstrated she has a high level of professionalism and dedication to her school and greater community,” says NDALL Past President Jennifer Frueh. “NDALL is pleased to recognize her contribution to the field of adult education.”

Hanlan’s professionalism and dedication is not just shown here at the Devils Lake Adult Learning Center but has been proven state and nationwide, said Devils Lake Adult Learning Center Director April Duchscher.

“Bridget is always up for the challenge and wants to stay on top of the latest updates to our program and instructional methods to best meet our student’s needs,” Duchscher said.

Hanlan began working with Adult Education three years ago as the Lead Instructor at the Devils Lake Adult Learning Center.

“She is constantly updating our curriculum, keeping up with professional development and ALWAYS puts the needs of the students first. Bridget takes the leads on each student’s individualized educational plan. She chooses the curriculum, writes an educational plan for each student that is then followed by all staff members. She sets attainable goals for each student so they are able to see their progress and success.

NDALL is a statewide association that supports adult education and alternative education, its providers and clients. For more information, visit www.ndall.info.
