We hope you are doing well.
There is now less than one month to go until applications and nominations close for the Global Teacher Prize, and we wanted to ask you to help us spread the word.
We are now starting the seventh cycle of this prize, which continues to highlight the important work of extraordinary teachers around the world. Now more than ever, it is important they are recognised for their contribution and have a seat at the table when decisions are made on education.
Teachers applying for the Global Teacher Prize will be assessed on teaching practices, how they innovate to address local challenges, achieve demonstrable learning outcomes, impact the community beyond the classroom, help children become global citizens, improve the teaching profession and gain recognition from external bodies. The US$1m award was won last year by Indian village teacher Ranjitsinh Disale.
Please join us in celebrating teachers and the amazing things they do to develop and refine our brains. Recognize the teachers who have changed your life, and the lives of others around you, by nominating them for a Global Teacher Prize HERE by April 30th, 2021.
