Dr. Michael Baldwin Has Been Shortlisted as One of "$1 Million Global Teacher"
Dr. Michael Baldwin, has been shortlisted as one of 50 finalist worldwide for the prestigious $ 1 million Global Teacher Award. He was selected from nearly 5,000 nominations from 127 countries including the United States, Italy, Kenya, India, Malaysia and China. The prize, one of the largest of its kind, is open to school teachers across the world. Applicants are judged on how they inspire their students, how much they contribute to the community, and how much they encourage others to become teachers.
Dr. Baldwin is a science teacher at the Dalian American International School in Dalian China where he works with students to create a healthier and more sustainable environment. He believes that an important part of teaching is helping students develop their natural leadership and collaboration skills. Students in his class have organized community beach cleanups, recycling projects, Earth Day Celebrations, as well as developed community outreach presentations on water conservation and environmental stewardship.
When asked about the award, Dr. Baldwin said, “There are so many great teachers including the staff at the school where I work. Teaching is really a community effort where every one of us including the students themselves contribute to their success. Much of my effort as a teacher is facilitated by great administrators and fellow teachers who have shared their enthusiasm and great ideas.”
The awards are sponsored by the UK-based Varkey Foundation to celebrate the best teachers around the world, who inspire their students and the communities around them. The Global Teacher Award seeks to do for education what the Nobel Prize has done for science, literature, and peace. The competition focuses to uplift the valuable contributions that teachers make every day to establish a flourishing global society.
The Huamei Academy Awarded the “Best Feature International School” Prize
Along with new college entrance examination reform, and in consideration of the great effort to promote English teaching and the great achievements students have made in the public and private schools of China, English coursework has become the focus of public attention. Its study will accelerate the internationalization of China’s education. China Daily and The 21st Century English Education Media Group recently held the English Education Industry Annual Conference on December 18th, 2014 at Beijing where nearly 200 attendees reviewed and honored the great achievements of China’s English education industry in 2014.
With experienced international teachers teaching a fully accredited American high school curriculum in English, small class sizes and advanced classroom technology, the Huamei Academy inspires students to be lifelong learners and independent thinkers. Their education and experiences prepare them for successful admission and study in colleges and universities throughout America and Europe. The Huamei Academy was the focus of attention at the Annual Conference, and was awarded the “Best Feature International School” prize. Ms. Lisa Liang, the founder and CEO of Dalian American International School and The Huamei Academy, was invited as a special guest and participated in a forum focusing on “International Education Practice with Chinese Characteristics.” Ms. Liang and the other experts shared their views and insights on current Chinese international education developments and trends, the connection and integration of Chinese and foreign coursework, and the training of teachers. After accepting the award, a reporter interviewed Ms. Liang. She spoke glowingly of the mission of Dalian American International School and The Huamei Academy and was very gratified to receive her award on behalf of the school.
