“Winning the Milken Award was really rocket fuel for my career! There’s no question that getting this recognition helped me realize that I could do greater things in education.”

  • Hi Dr. Carter!
    I was lucky enough to hear you speak at the ODU Teacher Orientation. Thanks!
    I have so many questions about when you won the Milken award...
    1. Do you have a picture from when you heard your name called for the award!?
    2. What did you do with the $25,000 check?- I would be so nervous to spend it on the most effective things!
    3. What is the biggest thing you've learned from being recognized for your great teaching?
    4. Did you always know you wanted to be a teacher?

    I'm from Fairfax, VA so it is very exciting that you won and you are from Woodbridge! Congratulations! And thank you for the great reminders on how to be a great teacher!
