St. Regis event honors distinguished educators
The 58 Detroit Public School teachers who earned National Board Certification, the 11 individuals who have been honored with the Milken Family Foundation National Teacher Award, along with DPS Teachers Of The Year, have made the District proud. They represent the best and brightest teachers in the District and were recently paid tribute to at a mini gala at the St. Regis Hotel. Attaining National Board Certification is a true test of all the skills, knowledge and techniques a teacher has. It can take as long as 2 years to secure. The 11 Milken National Teacher Award recipients honored had been selected during the past few years. They won because of their exceptional work in the classroom, their creativity and numerous extraordinary skills and more that help them prepare students for the future. The guest speaker for that most uplifting evening was Mr. Dave Bing, former Piston great and the Chairman of the Bing Group.
