Everyone knows about Nobel Prize awards in the fields of Medicine, Chemistry, Physics, Economics and world peace and the winner in this field are awarded with the million dollars. But they never paid attention to the person who taught them. So, there is no recognition to best teacher internationally until this Award, “Global Teacher Prize” is announced.

Mr.Sunny Varkey who bring this new award “Global Teacher Prize” to existence. Sunny’s opinion that best teachers need to be recognized internationally. They have to be respected well, received well and we have to make them feel proud of being a teacher because teaching not just a profession and its means way more than this educational world and the role of teachers in student’s life is important to the society.
