Francesca Colombo


"I support the teaching profession and the Global Teacher Prize because.. The pillars of my "getting adult" have been my family and passionate teachers: thanks to them I am today what I am, they stimulated my brain and created my "values" backbone. I hope that many young people could find global teachers who can understand and guide them to find their path in life. "
