Nazgol Bagheri: Mapping student success with compassion

In 1980’s war-torn Tehran, 1st grade teacher Mrs. Panahi faced every difficult day with a sense of hope and a smile of encouragement for her students, going so far as to open her home to her class when their school eventually closed.

By establishing caring connections with her students and utilizing experiential learning, Bagheri has an unwavering dedication to her students’ success and is a true inspiration within the fields of geography, urban planning and design, and education at large.
