We are excited to announce the student leaders from across the Teach For All network who have been chosen to present their projects at Teach For All’s annual Global Conference in Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria in October.
In the communities where they teach, Teach For All participants across the network are working with parents and community members to ensure their students are learning and thriving, inside and outside the classroom.
Over the coming weeks, Teach For All will be sharing a series of videos featuring leaders from across the network who are working to overcome the barriers that prevent all students from receiving the excellent and equitable education every child deserves. These leaders include students, teachers, alumni and CEOs who are collaborating with each other and with members of their communities to transform classrooms, schools, and entire systems in an effort to ensure more kids are able to fulfil their potential.

It all started with one classroom in South London...
My biggest win as a teacher in South London happened in my second year when I started a student football team with a Teach First colleague. Suddenly, my relationships with some of my most challenging and disengaged students changed in a positive way. For me, leading the team allowed me to get to know my Year 10 boys outside the classroom. But the impact went much deeper, providing students with self-confidence and a sense of companionship that had a positive impact on their academic performance.
This week, 10 representatives of the Teach For All community were recognized for their innovative leadership in the field of education in two high-profile publications: Forbes and Semana.
