LANSING - The Michigan Department of Education (MDE) is pleased to announce the release of the latest #proudMIeducator video, featuring Janine Scott, the
2020-21 Region 10 Teacher of the Year, who shares her journey in becoming an educator.
The video can be viewed at: #proudMIeducator: Janine Scott, 2020-21 Michigan Region 10 Teacher of the Year.
"It is important for us to continue highlighting the voices of educators," said State Superintendent Dr. Michael Rice. "The ProudMIeducator campaign is one way we honor the hard work of passionate educators, such as Janine Scott, and we hope that others will consider a career in education after listening to her story."
Scott grew up in Lansing and initially became an engineer after college prior to her teaching as a second career. She encourages all her students to consider a career in teaching, and shares some of the challenges that come with being a woman of color teaching mathematics.
