We are delighted to announce the winner of the 2021 Dedicated Teacher Awards... Annamma Lucy!

Dedicated Teacher Awards 2021

Teachers play a vital role in the lives of their students and often make a difference without even knowing it. 

The Dedicated Teacher Awards are a global competition in which you can nominate a current primary or secondary teacher for something wonderful they've done. 2020 was a challenging year for everyone, and so this year we want to thank as many teachers as possible for truly going above and beyond for their students.

We have loved reading all of your inspiring teacher stories, take a look through our shortlist eBook to read through our 60 shortlisted entries, and learn more about our six regional winners.
