Global Teacher Prize

February 11, 2018

Inspiring stories

In 2015 the first Global Teacher Prize was awarded and the recipient was a Maine educator, Nancie Atwell, the founder of The Center for Teaching and Learning in Edgecomb. Nancie is the author of In the Middle, now in its third edition and several other books. The award is presented to a teacher and “serves to underline the importance of educators.”

The Global Teacher award is $1m, provided by the Varkey Foundation. The finalists (10 each year) are very inspiring – I suggest that you listen to them, especially if you’re looking for a lift to start off February! and you can listen to their fabulous stories.
