Teacher of the Week Award

Teacher of the Week

Our Teacher of the Week category will showcase some of the most dedicated and inspiring educators across the social media community.

Whether it’s finding creative ways to inspire students or going out of their way to solve a problem, Teachers of the Week are resourceful, hard-working and generally passionate about teaching.

This week’s winner is…

Katia (@katiapuq) shares an interesting glimpse into the life of a teacher who works between Chile and Antarctica, which is really fascinating for us! Being so close to one of the coldest and most isolated areas of the world is a real challenge.

However, Katia really thrives in her role and works with the Antarctic Youth Coalition which provides students with key development skills and knowledge about Antarctica.

This week’s runner up is…

James Manwaring (@jpmanwaring) and such a relatable post about #teaching!
We can see his passion for education and humour, although the school term has begun I am sure many fellow teachers look forward to the UK half term to begin.

Our NQT category aims to recognise the excellent work of those at the initial stage of their teaching career. From going to great lengths to increase their own teaching knowledge, to networking with teachers and finding new and innovative ways to connect with pupils, NQTs of the Week find the perfect balance between learning and teaching.

This week’s winner is…

Chris Dyson (@chrisdysonHT) and Sukhjit Sandu (@SukhjitSandhu1) have shared a photo showing their support for #cancerawareness with a campaign to wear pink shirts to school every Thursday.

School of the week award

School of the Week

Our School of the Week award aims to celebrate those schools finding new and exciting ways to encourage learning.

This could be through a school trip, engaging in a school-wide project, fundraising or pulling off a performance or event. It could even be something as simple as making changes to students’ learning environment to boost motivation and increase productivity.

This week follows schools that are continuing to learn and study from home, whilst a small number of children will continue their studies in school. We have selected some of our favourite posts shared by schools this week, demonstrating their positive and creative approach to pieces of work.

This week’s winner is…

Ecole J S McCormick (@EJSMSchool) have an exciting visitor that joined them before the Winter break. The kindergarten class got to enjoy various activities with Swifty the school mascot.

This week’s runners up are…

Ms Surani_AMPA (@MsSurani) at Abbey Mead School and their wonderful feline mascots!

Kovu and Kenzo are bringing joy to their school and community and we really like their outfits too!
