The Global Teacher Prize-2021 awarded the best teachers of Ukraine

On October 2, the most prestigious Global Teacher Prize, which annually recognizes the best educators, presented awards for the fifth time to those who really deserve it.

We are very pleased that among the list of names there are winners who are especially close to us, who were joined by the head of our foundation Nadiia Ratke.

This year, she supported two nominations, which she received a prize fund. This is the nomination "Best Physical Education Teacher", which we support for the second year in a row, initiated by a team of the project of Alexander Pedan JuniorZ. And the nomination "Choice with the Heart", curated by TV presenter Natalia Moseychuk. Together we noted the teachers of the front zone, who work there with a volunteer mission.

This year the title of the best physical education teacher was awarded to Oksana Yurkiv, a teacher from Koziv Secondary School "Ukrainian Gymnasium named after V. Gereta» in the Ternopil region. She is a real example to follow because a proactive teacher cares about the development of sports talents of her students. For her work and love for the profession, the winner received a cash prize of UAH 30,000 and an educational trip to Germany from our foundation.

"Congratulations to the best physical education teacher! You are an example to many of your colleagues and an inspiration to schoolchildren. Sport and an active lifestyle open children's self-confidence and desire to succeed! ” - Nadiia Ratke, the founder of the IOSJ, announced at the ceremony.

As for the nomination "Choice with the Heart" by Natalia Moseychuk, two winners were chosen here - educational therapists who treat with knowledge and open the world to their students. Tetiana Vakulyuk from Dnipro received the first award. At the regional clinical hospital "Phthisiology" she teaches about 20 subjects - from mathematics for beginners to English for seniors.

Also, the award was presented to Ulyana Butsiak, a volunteer teacher of Ukrainian language and foreign literature from the village of Teysariv, Stryj district, Lviv region.

We are extremely happy to have joined an important award that motivates and supports teachers in such a difficult time, inspiring them to new achievements. We hope to be able to continue this initiative next year.
