Since 2012, the Trump Foundation has awarded a NIS 100,000 prize for excellence in teaching to math and science teachers who exemplify excellent teaching in their own careers. The winners are selected by a committee comprised of skilled teachers, experts in teacher training, and senior Education Ministry officials on the basis of the criteria for excellence in teaching delineated by the prize committee.

In Israel, there are wonderful teachers tirelessly doing their jobs, teachers who believe in their students’ abilities and encourage them to maximize their potential. The talent, knowledge, and experience of these excellent teachers are the foundation for any attempt to improve the overall quality of Israeli education. Israel needs these role models to map out a direction and a method, and for that to happen the public must be familiar with their art and better understand what constitutes effective teaching, so that the public’s trust in its teachers will grow.
