The Global Teacher Prize is an award that was set up in order to recognise the excellent achievements of teachers and the huge impact they have in society. The most recent winner of the award, Maggie MacDonnell, has not only demonstrated an ability to teach, but also an extraordinary ability to change a damaged community that so many people were too afraid to confront. Her courage, determination and general compassion for others has guided the Inuit village of Salluit out of an extremely dark place. Through multiple community projects and continuous educational and emotional support, Maggie has truly expanded the role of a teacher, and she herself has become a pillar of a very thankful community.
