A Pakistani teacher from Karachi, Ahmed Saya is among six finalists shortlisted for Cambridge University’s Dedicated Teacher Awards 2019.

Saya– currently teaches A-Level grade students at Cordoba school in Karachi– is one of the six teachers from across the world who is shortlisted for the award by a panel of educational experts for the award competition.

The winner will be decided by the voting process that ends on January 27.

“It was a tough decision for the judges but they have now decided on the six finalists for the Dedicated Teacher Awards 2019,” Cambridge Education tweeted.

Saya’s story on the voting page states: “He’ll always be ready to spare his weekends whenever a student needs his help, be it academically or anything personal. I have seen him when CAIEs approach, he spends sleepless nights, conducting extra classes, catering each and every student’s problem so that each one excels.

According to the Cambridge University Press website, the lucky winner will win a trip to Cambridge, UK, as well as CPD opportunities for their school. 

I have never seen someone who checks your homework every day in a class of 100 students just to ensure that each and everyone is on track. He actually deserves this for working so hard to ensure that his students are good humans.”

Other five contests are Abhinandan Bhattacharya from India, Anthony Chelliah from Sri Lanka, Australia’s Candice Green, Jimrey Dapin from Philippines and Sharon Kong Foong from Malaysia.
