Winner of The Varkey Foundation (US)$1 million Global Teacher Prize

The best teacher in the world, Nancie Atwell, winner of the Varkey Foundation (US)$1 million Global Teacher Prize, last night addressed parents and teachers at the Hampshire School Chelsea

Widely referred to as the Nobel prize for teaching, Nancie was presented the prize in March this year in Dubai at the Global Education and Skills Forum (GESF) 2015 by President Bill Clinton. Nancie immediately chose to donate all the prize money to the school she founded, the Center for Teaching and Learning.

In addressing the school, Nancie Atwell said:

"If I had influence beyond my dreams, I'd direct the educational decision-makers of the world to pay attention to literacy scholarship, focus on comprehension, and bring children's literature from the periphery of reading instruction to the foreground;  to put wonderful stories front and center.”
