CENTRAL Queensland TAFE teacher Tina Stritzke has been recognised for her work with adult migrants, winning a state TAFE Queensland English Language and Literacy Services award.

The talented Rockhampton teacher works at CQ TAFE as an Adult Migrant English Program case manager across Rockhampton, Gladstone and Biloela campuses.

The inaugural TELLS staff awards were to recognise and reward the work in 2012/13 by training/program support staff.

Tina, who has been an AMEP teacher and tutor at CQ TAFE's Rockhampton campus for 12 years, received the Special Recognition Award at the TELLS professional development conference in Brisbane on September 26.

"I was surprised and a little overwhelmed at such a prestigious award. It's rewarding knowing your peers value the work that you do," Tina said.
