Global Teacher Prize

A teacher from a remote Kenyan village has been named the world’s best, an honor that comes with a $1 million prize.

Peter Tabichi was awarded the Global Teacher Prize over the weekend in Dubai.  In his village of Pwani, Tabichi teaches children in a tiny school with no library and just one computer.  Some students walk as far as 7km to get to class.

Tabichi was chosen out of more than 10,000 global applicants.  He plans to use the million dollars to improve his school and help feed the poor.
