I found my team.
The other question I get most often is, “So what will you do next year?” Hmmm, great question…
The only thing I know for sure is that my work has just begun.
But for now, it is time to pass the torch. Rick Joseph, an extraordinary fifth and sixth grade teacher from Birmingham Covington School is our new Michigan Teacher of the Year! He is an award winning educator and genuinely kind man that I’m thrilled to know and excited to work with. He too, will enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. He too, will discover his purpose and find his voice. He too, will make an impact and influence change. It is Rick’s turn to be our voice and it is my turn to be the guiding light so that he can shine. Congratulations Rick!
