Do you remember your favorite teacher? Maybe she was the one that made a math concept suddenly click. Perhaps he helped bring literature to life through creative class projects or lively discussions. Then again, she might have been the one that singled you out in a room full of students and let you know she recognized your talents and appreciated you for being, well, you!
This year, Metro Parent's Top Teachers fall into each of these categories. Letters from parents and students alike nominated teachers across southeast Michigan that are striving to make a difference in the lives of their students.
All of the submissions were a reminder that while the curriculum may change and budgets may rise and fall, in the end, it all comes down to the teachers. They are the linchpin in a child's learning. Without them, the whole educational endeavor falls apart. And when they excel, the possibilities for their students are endless.
Here are five fine educators who rose to the top and impressed us with their dedication and creativity.
