President George W. Bush welcomes Jason Kamras, the 2005 National Teacher of the Year, to the Oval Office during ceremonies Wednesday, April 20, 2005, at the White House.

"Teaching is a commitment to equity and opportunity for all children," says Mr. Kamras, who took time away from teaching in 1999-2000 to earn his Master's degree at Harvard. "It is a promise of a better future for those who have been left behind." (UPI Photo/ Eric Draper/White House.

John Robert Philip (18 January 1927, Ballarat – 26 June 1999, Amsterdam) was an Australian soil physicist, internationally recognized for his contributions to the understanding of movement of water, energy and gases. While he never performed his own experimental work, he was recognised for his skills in mathematics that could be used to explain physical processes and solve real world problems.

His interests were not limited to Environmental mechanics and things mathematical, but included a keen interest in the arts. He was a published poet and a panelist on the Sulman Prize for Architecture. His poetry appears in anthologies edited by Judith Wright and in The Oxford Book of Australian Verse.

He was a recipient of a Scholarship for Scotch College, Melbourne, where he matriculated at age 13. He studied for his Bachelor of Civil Engineering, University of Melbourne (1943-1946).
