A teacher from Pakistan, Uroosa Imran, had qualified for the final round of the 2022 Cambridge Dedicated Teacher Awards- a prestigious international competition where teachers from across the globe are appreciated for going the extra mile to help students accomplish their full potential.
As per the official statement issued by Cambridge University Press, the nominations for the award are dependent on how far and beyond teachers are eager to go to make the “ordinary, extraordinary”.
“2022 Cambridge Dedicated Teacher Awards included 7,000 nominees from 113 countries across the globe from which six regional winners were selected by a panel of judges who made it to the final round,” the statement added.
It stated that the nominees included Uroosa Imran from Beaconhouse School System who is the regional winner for MENA and Pakistan.
“Uroosa teaches a child who suffers from a rare muscular disease due to which he is unable to sit, walk or hold things in his hands. Because of her efforts, the child comes happily to school, participates in all the activities, and is learning to express his needs and wants,” the PR said, adding that the hardworking teacher’s relentless efforts are a motivation to all the teachers across the globe.
Moreover, Pakistani teachers have always been at the forefront of these awards. Earlier, Ahmed Saya from Cordoba School was nominated as the global winner of the award for his outstanding efforts. Ahmed was among six other teachers who had qualified from around the world.
Meanwhile, the Country Head for Cambridge University Press Karima Kara stated, “Teachers are arguably the most important members of our society. They give children purpose, set them up for success as citizens of the world, and inspire in them a drive to do well in life.”
“I am extremely proud that year after year, teachers from Pakistan are winning this award and are inspiring good in others,” she added.
