Registration for the most prestigious national teacher award Global Teacher Prize Ukraine has started on March 20. This is a chance for every school teacher to demonstrate pedagogical skills, feel confident in their abilities, and compete for 250 000 hryvnias. The teacher can send the application independently or he/she can be nominated by anyone – students, colleagues, relatives. The winner will be announced on International Teachers’ Day on October 3, 2020.
We are sincerely convinced that every teacher is a superhero. And it has its own superpower, which it can share with society. Yes, it is teachers and education that can save our country. These heroes do not have impenetrable armor and a Superman cloak. But an outstanding IQ, multiplied by passion and desire to change the world around us, proves that our children are in safe hands. And as long as we have such teachers-changers, Ukraine will not be able to overcome any wars, viruses and financial crises. Please feel free to tell your teachers about their superpowers!
While the quarantine lasts, there are social networks for this, our branded hashtag #teacherful and the link where you can nominate any teacher for the Global Teacher Prize Ukraine.
In these difficult times of quarantine and distance learning, the whole country has felt the importance of “live” work with teachers. But our teachers deserve recognition not only in quarantine. Therefore, the Global Teacher Prize Ukraine helpі to celebrate their contribution to society.
