Nominated By: Mark Wilson

Harry and Rosemary are teachers, whose lifework is to help other teachers be effective. Research is conclusive that the most significant variable in student performance is having an effective teacher. Their book has sold more copies than any other book in the world of school improvement, giving teachers what they need to plan a successful school year. The tenets of First Days of Schools are used in tens of thousands of classrooms at all levels in thousands and thousands of schools around the world. The First Days of School has endurance, (over thirty years in print) distance (it is in multiple languages and in countries around the world), and prominence (ask any teacher!). It is also a part of an intentional effort on the part of Harry and Rosemary to make a lasting effect on all humanity by teaching the teachers.
