The Michigan Department of Education is asking educators, administrators, students and parents to help it find the next “Michigan Teacher of the Year.”
Sponsored by the Meemic Foundation, the award recognizes outstanding educational leaders across Michigan for their work to elevate the teaching profession.
Michigan Teachers of the Year have been recognized since 1952. The honor is part of the preeminent state- and nationally-renowned teacher recognition program in states across the country.
MDE’s online nomination form is open Oct. 20 for people to nominate a teacher or teachers whom they feel are exceptional educators and have made substantial contributions to their profession.
