We honor and award teachers to instigate positive educational change from the ground, up.
We are a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization incorporated in the US with an international focus on teacher innovation and inventiveness. Through our mission, we honor and award teachers to instigate positive educational change from the ground, up.
We award at least one teacher from our partnering schools $1,000 USD with a Summer Fellowship for Innovative Teachers. Murdock-Thompson Summer Fellows may use their fellowship fund in any way they choose, typically developing or continuing research for innovative or motivational strategies and writing and submitting papers for publication.
Our partnerships are determined jointly by the Murdock-Thompson Center for Teachers and the school. Today, we partner with:
Zaria Academy (Nigeria)
Lycée Municipal de Tanda (Ivory Coast)
Vital Years School (Nigeria)
Jacqueline Walsh School for The Arts (USA)
Community Preparatory School (USA)
