Re: The Global Teacher Prize
A grace-filled season of Advent!
The Global Teacher Prize is an initiative of the Varkey Foundation, under the patronage of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister, and Emir of Dubai. It is a US $1 million award presented annually to an exceptional teacher who has made an outstanding contribution to the profession. “The prize serves to underline the importance of educators and the fact that, throughout the world, their efforts deserve to be recognized and celebrated. It seeks to acknowledge the impact of the very best teachers – not only on their students but on the communities around them.”
