It said that the nominees included Uroosa Imran from Beaconhouse School System who is the regional winner for MENA and Pakistan.
"Uroosa teaches a child who suffers from a rare muscular disease due to which he is unable to sit, walk or hold things in his hands. Because of her efforts, the child comes happily to school, participates in all the activities and is learning to express his needs and wants," the PR said and added that Uroosa's relentless efforts are an inspiration to teachers across the globe.
Teachers from Pakistan have always been at the forefront of these awards. Previously, Ahmed Saya from Cordoba School was elected as the global winner of the award for his exemplary efforts.

"Teachers are arguably the most important members of our society. They give children purpose, set them up for success as citizens of the world, and inspire in them a drive to do well in life," Country Head for Cambridge University Press Karima Kara said.
"I am extremely proud that year after year, teachers from Pakistan are winning this award and are inspiring good in others," she added.
