In Memory of Gail Weinstein
Dr. Gail Weinstein was an educator, linguist, mentor, world traveler, and peacemaker. Gail was a professor in the English department at SFSU training ESOL teachers. Friends and family of Dr. Weinstein set up this fund to provide a monetary award to an ESL teacher or graduate student who creates project-based curricular materials for the ESL classroom.
Gail was a leader in the project-based learning movement. She presented many times at CATESOL and TESOL on her work with immigrants and project-based learning in the community. San Francisco State University President Robert Corrigan wrote that Professor Weinstein had made a “ lasting impact in a community that ranges from close friends, students and colleagues, to immigrants who may never know even her name - but whose lives she has changed."
