MEA Season Ends in New Mexico, Virginia
Dear Milken Educators and Champions of Education,
Welcome, Mr. DeGroot and Mrs. Wilson!
Colin DeGroot (NM '15, left): Students fight to get into Colin DeGroot's science classes at The ASK Academy in Rio Rancho. DeGroot's students have built roller coasters, a rocket, a wind farm, and a car that runs on carbon dioxide. Their next project: setting up an array of solar panels on the school's campus to provide power to the facility. Photos | Video
We continue our Spotlight interviews with this year's Milken Educators in Connections. We’ve purposely gone beyond resume points to give you insight into what makes these outstanding educators tick. You’ll see recipients talking about their own most memorable teachers; how the very first jobs they held as teenagers influence the way they teach today; their varied paths to the classroom; and what they say to students who express interest in careers in education.
Learn more about the Milken Educator class of 2015-16 in Connections.
