Leaving No One Behind: The Story of Teacher Sam

The nation is collectively celebrating and beaming with joy, as news hit that teacher Samuel Isaiah has been named as one of the Top 10 finalists of the Global Teacher Prize 2020. The Global Teacher Prize, which is presented by the Varkey Foundation, comes with a US $1 million award, that is presented annually to an exceptional teacher who has made an outstanding contribution to their profession. Currently a Fulbright scholar pursuing a Master’s degree in Educational Policy and Leadership in State University of New York, Samuel joins us to share more about his work with Orang Asli children, and how he hopes to use this award to bring more attention to the issues they are facing, when it comes to their education.
