We all have teachers who have inspired us, who have made a difference in our lives. The teacher has the power to create or destroy life. Good lessons can inspire the desire for a subject that lasts a lifetime, while a lack of training can kill the willingness to learn.
Teachers who make a significant difference in the lives of their students – sometimes with all obstacles – deserve to be celebrated. Teacher Prizes Global works on that, handing $ 1 million to outstanding teachers who have given spectacular contributions to their profession.

Raymond Chambers, UK
When Computer Science alumni Ray began teaching, he pursued lessons prepared for boring and unattractive students. He began developing new soft devices to learn to use Microsoft Kinect. He was driven by a leap in both the involvement and academic achievement of his computer students, so he concluded to share these activities and best practices with other teachers.
The YouTube Ray channel now has more than 250,000 hits. The BBC asked him to contribute Microbit resources that were spent on teacher-use nationally in the UK. If he wins a prize, he will use the funds to support charitable work to add computer science education in the UK and Africa.
Wemerson da Silva Nogueira, Brazil
Science teacher Wemerson began his career in the suburbs with the highest level of malice. Many of his students fell into disdain, and the school had a 50% drop-out rate.
Wemerson leads a social group named “Young Scientists: Designing a New Future.” One of the works of this project involves studying the periodic table by analyzing stained mud and water in Rio Doce, securing 90% of students around the world from crime and drugs.
Today the Wemerson school is felt to be the best in the city. If he wins a prize, Wemerson will use the money to create a foundation that supports the training of all young teachers.

In addition, Maggie has created a special life-skills program for girls to combat housing gender problems in society: teenage pregnancy is common, high rates of sexual abuse and gender roles burden young girls with domestic tasks. If Maggie wins the prize, she will build a non-profit to support youth involvement, cultural preservation, and global citizenship.
