From over 400 nominations, we selected 20 finalists from around the world for the 2014 Facing History Together Teacher Recognition Contest. Then you voted for the educator whose story and work inspired you most.
Today we are so thrilled to introduce you to our 2014 Facing History Together Teacher Recognition Contest winner Hayden Frederick-Clarke, the founding math teacher at Diploma Plus, a small learning community at Charlestown High School in Boston, Massachusetts. Frederick-Clarke will receive a $5,000 teaching grant to benefit his school and community, and to further his work as a great educator.
For decades, students, parents, volunteers, and community members have been inspired by their Facing History and Ourselves encounters – whether in the classroom, at public and private events in-person or online, or through any of the teachers or alumni who talk about their transformative experiences from bystander to upstander.
