Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
In order to establish a model example of rural teachers’ sunshine vitality and carry forward the noble morality of rural teachers’ selfless dedication, Ma Yun Public Welfare Foundation officially launched the “Ma Yun Rural Teacher Program and the 2015 First Ma Yun Rural Teacher Award” on September 16, 2015, once a year. Look for 100 excellent first-line rural teachers. For award-winning teachers, the Foundation will provide a total of 100,000/person cash grants and professional training and development opportunities for three years to encourage and support teachers in rural education innovation practices.
From March 20 to May 20 this year, the 2018 Ma Yun Rural Teacher Program received a total of 1892 valid application materials.
After more than two months of verification and reporting, initial evaluation, field visits, etc., we selected 180 out of the 300 teachers who were selected, and were selected as teachers in the Ma Yun Rural Teacher Program.
Some people say that the rural teachers gather together as a fire, and the stars are full of stars.
There are 34 provincial-level administrative regions in the country, and the nominated teachers cover 23 of them.
Among the 832 concentrated contiguous districts, national poverty alleviation counties and relatively poor counties in Zhejiang Province, the nominated teachers came from 139 of them.
The schools where the teachers are nominated are 9 kilometers away from the township and the average distance is 53 kilometers.
In their school, the average number of teachers is 29 and the average number of students is 381 .
The class they bring, the average number of students is 43 .
Teacher Ma Yun once said that many teachers have never seen the sea, have not taken the plane, how do they let the children imagine the future?
In order to express respect and gratitude to the outstanding rural teachers, at the same time, deepen the society’s understanding of rural teachers and stimulate the society’s greater attention to rural education, every year before and after the Lunar New Year, the rural teacher spokesperson Ma Yun will be in 100 award-winning villages in Sanya. Teachers held awards ceremonies to make them the dazzling stars of the day.
