It takes a special teacher to brighten a student’s world. Do you have a teacher colleague who works hard to make magic happen in the classroom every day? If you could say one thing to them, what would it be?
Nominate a colleague who continues to inspire you as a remarkable educator. Last year, Justus nominated his colleague for the Global Teacher Prize: Jacque Kahura — she became a finalist! When asked why he was nominating Jacque for the $1 million award, Justus wrote:
“Jacque has gone beyond preparing children for exams. She actively engages children through purposeful teaching practices that help children develop their social, physical, emotional, and cognitive capabilities, creating a joyful classroom environment that fosters team work, critical thinking, Individual effort and a sense of belonging. She has done all this with respect for each child’s unique capabilities and in full partnership with families.”
Could your teacher colleague become a Teacher Prize finalist, too? Nominate them and tell us why they’re the most outstanding teacher in the world!
