    London maths teacher shortlisted for million-dollar teaching prize

    'A London teacher is in the final 10 contenders to be named the world’s best teacher and win a $1 million (£691,000) prize.

    Colin Hegarty, from Preston Manor School in Wembley, north-west London, has been shortlisted for the Global Teacher Prize, which aims to recognise an “exceptional teacher who has made an outstanding contribution to the profession”.

    Mr Hegarty reached the final 10 after creating more than 1,000 online maths videos that have been viewed almost 5 million times. He and the other nine finalists for the $1 million prize, which is run by the Varkey Foundation, the charitable arm of the Gems education group, have been narrowed down from 8,000 nominees.
