September 1, 2020 – Dr. Romana Trefil, teacher of German and Individuals & Society at Atlanta International School, has been honored with the 2020 Teacher of the Year Award from Rate my Teachers (RMT).
She received her master’s degree in German Philology and History, and PhD Degree in German Philology at the University of Vienna, Austria. Before coming to the USA in 2017, she taught in schools in Germany, Austria and Croatia.
RMT is a review site (www.ratemyteachers.com) where students in grades K-12 and college can rate teachers and courses. As of April 2010, over 11 million teachers have been rated in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, New Zealand, and Australia.
To mark its first full school year using a new and improved rating system, RMT honors teachers selected by their students as among the best. Working with educational psychologists, teachers, and students themselves, at the beginning of the 2019 school year RMT relaunched with a fresh design and a new and improved survey. In addition, moderation procedures were upgraded to keep comments civil and relevant, while still providing space for students to share their experiences.
With a full year of refreshed ratings and comments and more coming daily, RMT decided to celebrate the milestone by recognizing the best-rated teachers in each state or province. To be considered, a teacher must have an average overall rating above a 4.0, and to win, they must have the highest overall number of above-average ratings. This year, a total of 69 teachers have been honored in four countries: 48 in the USA, 11 in Canada, 7 in Australia, and 3 in New Zealand.
