South Pasadena High School Congratulates Outstanding Educator

South Pasadena High School congratulates English teacher Rama Kadri who received the 2022 University of Chicago Outstanding Educator Award.

An “Outstanding Educator” thoughtfully approaches instruction, shares an infectious love for learning, and cares for students both inside and outside of the classroom. Ms. Kadri teaches 9th grade English and AP Literature. She also serves as the advisor for the Peer Mediation Program and the SPHS Anti Bias Club.

Each year, newly admitted UChicago students have the opportunity to reflect on their time in school and nominate an educator who played a significant role in their education and made a positive impact in their lives. Thousands of students sent nominations in recognition of educators who have positively impacted their lives.

All award winners receive a commemorative award, certificate, and letter that includes details from the student who nominated them. Thank you for going above and beyond the call of duty every day and leaving an impression that will last a lifetime.
