World Educator Award
2013 World Educator, Noah Zeichner
Each year, the World Affairs Council honors a local educator who has made exceptional contributions in broadening the global horizons of students and colleagues. The recipient of the World Educator Award is an outstanding K-12 teacher who promotes international understanding in the classroom and contributes to the development of resources so that other educators and community members are better prepared to meet a major challenge of our time: to educate youth about world affairs. This year we are pleased to announce Noah Zeichner as the World Affairs Council’s 2013-14 World Educator!
The World Affairs Council has honored an outstanding teacher with the World Educator Award each year since 1997. We will salute Noah, along with the recipient of the 2013 World Citizen Award, at a public program in early 2014.
