Winner Highlight

Zeke Phillips

"As a teacher, I believe in the power of possibility. I communicate to my students that, with hard work, they can accomplish great things. So, if I—if we—could win this prize, it would further prove that what we chant at the end of every class is true: 'Anything is possible.'"

"I felt too busy at the time, and I was skeptical about my chances. Yet I believed deeply that my students were accomplishing incredible things, so I decided to go for it."

Leslie Ross

"As a result of these experiences, I no longer see myself as an educator making a difference in one classroom at a time—I am a game changer, redefining what it means to be a teacher leader at the district, state, and national level."
