Choice is extremely proud of the dedication, sacrifice and determination these educators have put forth this year to make these nominations possible. What you are doing in the classroom is making a difference, impacting children and has encouraged your fellow colleagues to nominate you for your outstanding performances.
Every year, educators and administrators are nominated for Teacher and Administrator of the Year, but this is the first time that so many have been nominated from Choice Schools Associates and MIChoice. We are incredibly thankful to have so many individuals on the Choice team that believe in the students we serve, the families we serve and the communities we serve.
