Andria always wanted to be an art teacher.
Then she got to her first placement. There was the classroom with broken windows. The unmotivated children. The lack of supplies.
But she wasn’t deterred, and within weeks those same students weren’t only engaged; they were handing in homework. Her supervisor was shocked, and Andria was empowered.
This was what she was born to do.
After graduating, Andria took up a role at Alperton Community School in London, whose students are among the country’s most deprived. With her compassion, enthusiasm and skill, Andria inspired classroom after classroom of students – and in 2018, found herself on-stage accepting a $1 million prize for being the ‘Best Teacher in the World’.
Those Who Can, Teach is Andria’s story. But it’s also about all the other unsung heroes of the classroom, and how anyone can create change, if they set their mind to it.
