"I commend the Varkey GEMS Foundation for honoring the role of teachers and for encouraging the world to step forward with nominations of great teachers that have touched their lives. These stories in turn will inspire others in the profession and a virtuous cycle will have formed, multiplying their impact on children, present and future."
