Women perform a large number of essential and unique roles in society.
That fact is undeniable.
From authors and actresses to CEOs and engineers: Women prove time and time again that they can perform any job just as efficiently and professionally as any man can.
As a high school Science and Chemistry Teacher, I am truly honoured to work with a team of incredibly dedicated female colleagues. Some of the best teachers in the whole world are women, and here’s why:
- They are caring and nurturing: essential characteristics when teaching and helping children and young adults
- They are efficient and incredibly organised
- They are passionate
- They are truly dedicated to the profession
- They are just great teachers, period!
All teachers, male or female, are heroes and heroines: we inspire the next generation with our tireless efforts to educate, sustain, help and care for our learners.
This article celebrates the lives and works of eleven truly exceptional female teachers who continue to inspire and influence educational thought, methodologies and practice in classrooms and universities all over the world. Their work not only benefits others but shapes and moulds traditional pedagogy so that it continually evolves and improves as the years go by.
With any ‘Best’ list, I have to very selective – not everyone can be included! If you feel that another female teacher is worthy of mention then please do comment using the box at the bottom of the post.
All but one these amazing women have a twitter handle. If you click on the twitter image it’ll take you to that person’s twitter page.
Why not send a nice message to your favourite out of these ten women? In celebration of International Women’s Day 2018, a nice message on Twitter to thank one or more of these women for their amazing work will go a long way and will probably bring a smile to their faces.
So now let’s begin our celebration of women in education!
