It’s a great opportunity for Canadians to show their appreciation for the teachers who are changing the lives of our students.
Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) November 02, 2011
Canada is getting closer to knowing who Canada’s Most Inspiring Teacher is. EF Educational Tours today announced the five finalists, chosen from teachers from across Canada.
“We were really impressed with the top five finalists, and the way they are inspiring students and colleagues,” said Greg Owen, Vice-President, EF Educational Tours. “All of the teachers who were nominated stood out as leaders. At EF, we are proud to partner with teachers who are helping their students learn in new and creative ways.”
The contest asked students, parents and teachers to nominate a teacher or colleague who inspires others and takes the time to know and support students. EF received over 200 submissions from across Canada. Nominations consisted of a short essay where the authors were challenged to explain how the nominated teacher is changing the lives of students and/or colleagues.
With the final five now selected, the contest shifts to Facebook, where the public can vote for Canada’s Most Inspiring Teacher. Finalists and details for the contest can be found at eftours.ca/contests.
Anyone can vote by clicking on the “Inspiring Teachers” link at facebook.com/eftourscanada. The voting is open until 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, November 8th. The teacher with the most votes will win a trip for themselves and a guest with EF Educational Tours. The winning teacher will also win a $5,000 scholarship for their school.
“We can’t wait to see who is selected as the most inspiring teacher,” said Owen. “It’s a great opportunity for Canadians to show their appreciation for the teachers who are changing the lives of our students.”
