Inspirational Teachers

Do you remember one or two teachers from your school days who really inspired you and had a lasting impact on your life? At times he or she may introduce you to a new subject or push you out of your comfort zone but most importantly a great teacher is someone who sees potential in a student and pushes them to attain that potential.

Rewarding Inspirational Teachers

The Oxford Inspirational Teacher award scheme recognises the crucial role teachers play in encouraging talented students in their schools or colleges. Each year, current first-year Oxford undergraduates from UK state schools or colleges with a limited history of sending students to Oxford are asked if they would like to nominate an inspirational teacher. This uplifting video gives recognition to a group of teachers who have made a significant change in the life of a student and they hear directly from the student how impactful their support was. 

Web of the Week would love to hear from you about a teacher who had a positive impact on your life.  Share your stories in the comments below!

1 thought on “Inspirational Teachers”

  1. Dear Guy, I am greatly enjoying your Web of the Week productions, and find that they provide a lot of interesting and varied material to look forward to each week. inevitably some tiles are of more interest to me than others, but I suppose that happens to everybody. Anyway I hope you will persevere with your work, and that it will become known to more and more people!
    As for an “Inspirational Teacher”, I am now 89 years old so my memory of schooldays is a bit fuzzy! But I definitely remember with gratitude a Geography teacher at my secondary school in the late 1940’s. He gave us a project to map the school grounds, including contours, using chains, theodolites, and levels – and I found it fascinating.
    Perhaps that was why I later became a Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors!
