Metro Parent Top Teachers Awards 2012

Here they are! Meet five fabulous southeast Michigan educators who truly put the 'excel' in excellence – from band to special needs to science

(page 1 of 6)

The praise poured in after we asked readers to submit nominations for the educators they thought should be recognized as one of Metro Parent's Top Teachers. It was heartening to see so many express their appreciation for the efforts of their kids' teachers. Thank you, readers! And thank you, Michigan teachers whose efforts often go unheralded.

After sifting through essay after heartfelt essay espousing the virtues of hundreds of local teachers, we narrowed it down to a final fabulous five. All of the teachers nominated were clearly special. You can see for yourself by browsing through all of the Top Teachers nominations.

But for Metro Parent, these five seemed particularly stellar. From constantly coming up with creative ways to teach complex subjects to taking the time to meet with students one-on-one, these men and women reminded us of the amazing impact one awesome teacher can have on the life of a child. We salute them.

Congratulations, Mr. Fisher! I went ALL through school with him, (Jr High and High School) and he LOVED school then, and still LOVES it! Awesome! I can just see him teaching! The energy he had back then, he still has! Amazingly wonderful!
Congrats, again, Mr. Fisher!
