Andria Zafirakou has surpassed around 30,000 teachers from 175 courtiers of the world to become the best teacher of the world. She teaches Arts and Textile to her students. It was the 4th Annual Work Foundation Global Teacher Prize 2018. Besides the Prize, she has won a big prize of 6.5 Crore Rupees.
The winner got this prestigious award in UAE. She is the first teacher from UK who has got this award. It was the very tough competition among the teachers of Turkey, South Africa, US, Brazil, Australia etc. The Prime Minister of UAE, Sheikh, Mohammad Bin awarded the winner.
After getting the prize, Andria told the problems faced by the students. She informs that students study in the noisy voice of their homes. There is a single room in which students study along with their family members. So it is very difficult for them to focus on their studies. Funnily they have to go to toilet to study.
She has experimented a lot in her teaching style. The main purpose was to provide as much benefit as possible. Besides the teaching, she has done many good works. It was very difficult for the Academy to choose the most eligible candidate out of such whopping numbers. The judge committee included Experts from the Educational Field, Head Teachers, Journalists, Company Directors etc.
The award was stared to encourage teachers world-wide to do their best in their teaching field.
Andria Zafirakou works in Alperton Community School, a secondary school in the inner city Brent. The students of this school come from the poorest families of Britain. These students have limited sources of education. It is she who fills passion of education and aim for life. It means she gives selfless service to those who really need her.
There is no doubt that she will be a source of inspiration for the generations of teachers.
