This week, 2015 Global Teacher Prize winner Nancie Atwell visited Capitol City Academy in London to share some learning time with the students there.

While in London, she sat down with anchor Eamonn Holmes of Sunrise, the Sky News morning show. They hold a lively discussion about the state of teaching, her approach to keeping students engaged, and how her school has changed since she was named, as they said, ‘World’s Best Teacher’.

Nancie notes, “I need to act like the most engaged grown up in the room when it comes to loving literature and literacy, and what it’s done in my own life.” Find out her superhero power to pull kids in and see the look she gives in her classroom when needed!

2015 Global Teacher Prize winner Nancie Atwell on Sunrise 11/1…“I need to act like the most engaged grown up in the room when it comes to loving literature and literacy, and what it’s done in my own life.” 2015 Global Teacher Prize winner Nancie Atwell talks with Eamonn Holmes on Sky News Sunrise about why #TeachersMatter! “You’re like a good soccer coach, a football manager — there’s that distance at the end of the day,” Eamonn says. Having books is Nancie’s superhero power to pull kids in. She doesn’t have a nickname but she does have a ‘look’ she uses, which she shows the co-hosts. A funny moment! #TeacherTuesday
