It’s been close to 2 months since we invited you to nominate your favorite teacher to the QuickSchools Teacher of the Year 2012 award. The nomination phase saw a total of 9 fantastic individuals emerged as candidates for the award.
The voting phase that followed was so much fun. We were treated to so many heartwarming stories of compassion, leadership and wonder in the classroom performed by our rockstar teachers. The stories range from teaching a kindergarten class to read to engaging young minds to a debate on political theory; from transforming shy students into becoming confident young adults to helping young kids to discover the joy of learning again; and everything in between!
The voting phase ended last Friday and boy, was there a flurry of last minute votes. We finally got everything published and tallied the votes. I’m happy to announce that the QuickSchools Teacher of the Year 2012 award goes to Franklin Burns of Saint Tower Academy. Congratulations Franklin and the Saint Tower team!
Thank you to everyone who participated with your Facebook shares, tweets, comments, articles and videos. We apologize if at any point during the award period things didn’t go so smoothly. We will totally learn and do better next year in typical QuickSchools fashion.
And to all our rockstar teachers, we just want to thank you for your gracious participation and above all, we thank you for being such great teachers and role models.
Azreen & the QuickSchools team.
