Ed Le Brun, who has been at Kings College, Guildford for six years, has been shortlisted for the Teacher of the Year award by bringing passion and “sports mentality” to the classroom.
Part of the Pearson National Teaching Awards broadcast on BBC2 each October, the prize receives thousands of nominations which are then whittled down to a shortlist of less than 10.
“It’s been a brilliant journey and immensely, immensely gratifying for me. It’s all a bit surreal really when you feel you’ve got that level of recognition because there are so many brilliant teachers in the country who are equally as deserving of it as I am,” he says.
Congratulations Ed, we are all very proud of you – what an amazing achievement.
