We’re excited to announce who will be judging this year’s Teacher Award competition!
We have assembled a terrific panel of experts and industry-insiders representing different facets of the English language teaching community. Find out more about this year’s judges and why they’re excited to be part of the Teacher Award.
Author and Methodology legend in the ELT arena, Jeremy has been working with Pearson for many years and has most recently been involved in some work representing “voice of the teacher,” so he is an ideal person to have as a judge. Jeremy will be looking for a teacher who demonstrates ongoing curiosity about the world around them. ‘Together with genuine care for the students they work with, this shouts ‘great teacher’ at me,’ he explained.
BBC Editor of English content, Emily is very excited about being a judge, and explained that what she’ll be looking for when reviewing this year’s submissions is ‘examples of teachers using digital resources in exciting and innovative ways, to support the different learning styles of their students.’
Recently appointed Senior Vice President of English & Schools, Freya had these uplifting words to say, ‘Teachers can transform lives- millions of learners around the world learn English in a classroom and their teachers inspire them to become proficient communicators of the English language.’ We’re very pleased that she’ll be a judge on this year’s panel.
Co-founder of ELT Jam, with his finger on the pulse of all things ELT, Nick commented, ‘I’m absolutely delighted to be asked to work with Pearson in recognizing the amazing work that teachers do.’
We are excited to see who will be recognized as a Pearson English Global Teacher Award winner this year and the impact they will have on the English language teaching community as a result.
