This year’s honorees are making education more accessible, finding unique and fun ways to get students interested in STEM fields, creating technologies that make life easier for both students and teachers, and more.

At Elevate Teachers, we’re happy to see education among the fields Forbes is recognizing. We’re also excited to see young people finding ways to address the real issues in education and supporting teachers instead of blaming them. We hope this is one more step on the way to widespread support for teachers in our society!
