In 2018, Dallas Fields was awarded with the Sanford Harmony, National University, Teacher of the Year for Oklahoma (now called the National University Inspire Teacher Award). Recently Ms. Fields was asked to participate in a Podcast called “What the World Needs Now.” Hosted by Josh Monroe and Tom Whisinnand, previous Inspire Teacher of the Year award winner.
These educators designed this podcast to network with fellow teachers and to reignite their passion for education. This community also retains great teachers who may find themselves struggling to remain in the field of education due to the many frustrations that teachers always face, especially in the time of a global pandemic when challenges have multiplied greatly atop the usual stresses.
Inspire Teacher Award is an award granted to teachers who inspire others in the field of education and whose passion for their career has led them to innovate and inspire students and colleagues while they pursue their careers. It’s a national award granted that offers state winners a $10,000 cash award and the national grand prize winner $50,000. The award is designed to reward teachers’ creativity, passion, and innovation in the classroom inspire others to reignite their own passions for teaching.
