Lara’s Foundation at the annual IATEFL conference April 2013
The IATEFL conference 2013, remembers Lara.
‘The IATEFL conference took place in Liverpool between April 8th and 12th. It was an enormous meeting of people involved in the TEFL industry from all over the world and there were over 2500 delegates. On the Thursday, amidst all the workshops and lectures, there was a very moving session. This was the IATEFL tribute session and was a time people could come together and remember people who had died in the TEFL world over the past year.
Lara’s university and DELTA tutor Madeleine and Lara’s friend and colleague Sarah both attended alongside some very well known and respected people in the profession. Sarah said;
‘ We spoke of Lara’s achievements and the great loss both personally and professionally we felt. We showed a picture of Lara enjoying her time in Mexico and talked about how her work and memory lives on in the Lara Foundation. Lara would have loved to have been there and it was very touching being able to speak about her in such surroundings.’
