Last year, PhD. Suzy Manuela Prajea has been nominated at the Global Teacher Prize and selected among the 50 finalists.

The Romanian math teacher has impressed not only the jury with her teaching methods, but also other professors form advanced education systems. An American openly declares that he is one of her biggest fans. Suzy Manuela Prajea is the only Romanian professor that has been one of the finalists of an award similar with the Nobel prize, in education. The competition has been tough, as there were 8000 nominees from 148 countries, all over the world. She has brought fame not only to the college she teaches in, but for Romania as well.

Manuela enthusiastically lives every moment spent in the classroom, and she does not only teach her students how to memorize math formulas, but how to find logic.

She teaches math in an attractive way and her students have the most to gain: they have brought home hundreds of prizes.

In the past 25 years, Manuela has inspired hundreds of students that have won 64 international awards, 133 national one and over 430 on a county level. Not only the children have reached high performances, but also the one that has guided them. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
