Windsor Mill Middle School science teacher Anuradha Bajpai has been nominated for the 2018-2019 National LifeChanger of the year award.

The national LifeChanger of the Year program recognizes and rewards K-12 public and private school teachers and employees across the U.S. who are making a difference in the lives of students through excellence, positive influence, and leadership.

The award program's selection committee described Bajpai as someone who “would go to the ends of the earth, literally, to educate her students,” and someone who is determined “to bring the world to her classroom and show her students that science is everywhere.”

Bajpai traveled to South Africa as one of NEA’s 2018 Global Learning Fellows, journeyed to Indonesia to participate in field experiences sponsored by IREX, attended the Summer STEM Academy at the U. S. Naval Academy, and trekked to the Arctic Circle to work with scientists at the Toolik Research Center in Alaska.

Each school year, the LifeChanger of the Year program receives hundreds of nominations from all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

If Bajpai is given the opportunity to win the award she will receive a $10,000 cash award that will be split between her and her school.
