Congratulations to Jennifer McMillan, Michigan's Charter School Teacher of the Year! Second-grade teacher Mrs. McMillan was surprised with the good news in a classroom filled with students, friends, and family.  

As she accepted the award, Mrs. McMillan humbly and graciously credited her students for all of her success. "They are the leaders of the future, so when I look at them, I don't just see seven year olds, eight year olds. I see the next generation of teachers, the next generation of mayors, the next generation of newscasters. They're the people who are going to make the next impact in our world."
