A “British” teacher who has what I believe to be a Greek name is taking home a cool million for her work with ethnics enrolled in her London school.
Among Andria Zafirakou’s accomplishments are her ability to speak a few words in the 35 languages spoken by pupils at the school.
Imagine a classroom as a zoo with babbling worthy of the Tower of Babel.
A teacher at a Brent secondary school has won the prestigious Global Teacher Prize.
Andria Zafirakou, who works at Alperton Community College, picked up the award worth $1m (£717,000) at a ceremony in Dubai on Sunday.
It is the first time a UK teacher has claimed the award from education charity the Varkey Foundation.
