On the eve of Teacher’s Day Russia will nominate an absolute winner in a nationwide competition- Teacher of the Year 2007
On the eve of Teacher’s Day Russia will nominate an absolute winner in a nationwide competition- Teacher of the Year 2007. The top prize - a big crystal pelican, will be awarded to the best teacher in the House of Columns in Moscow on Thursday. Representatives from five Russian regions- Moscow, St. Petersburg, Rostov, Yaroslavl and Murmansk regions, are contesting the top prize. The group of the five best contestants was announced in the city of Cherepovets in the Vologda region on September 29, where the final competition was held. Education Minister Andrei Fursenko said then that for the past three years the finals of the teachers' competition had been held in different regions of Russia. This year, the final competition was held in the home place of last year's winner of Teacher’s of Year prize, teacher of Russian and Literature Andrei Uspensky. ‘‘Russia’s best teacher should keep pace with the times," said a contestant from Moscow, Math teacher Anna Mekhed. Her colleague, teacher of Russian and Literature from Volgodonsk, Sergei Marinchenko, told Tass that the all-Russia competition Teacher of the Year "should be a festival, a holiday with no winners and no losers." After the winner is announced Marinchenko and other teachers are planning to begin a campaign to promote the status of a schoolteacher and hold seminars where the participants in the all-Russia teachers' contest might share their experience with other schoolteachers. "Schoolchildren should come to school and enjoy a comfortable spirit there, bright colors, rather than grey walls, to see a school interesting to be in, to meet wise and kind people. Computers and notebooks are good, but that should not be a goal in itself, making a child feel neglected," Sergei Marinchenko said. Asked what a school graduate should be like, Math teacher from St. Petersburg Sergei Gushchin quoted Nobel Prize winner Max von Laue as saying that knowledge is what remains after all the other things learned are forgotten. "Sooner or later the whole amount of things learned turns into quality, competence and skills, which enables a school graduate to develop," Dmitry Gushchin told Tass.
