Michael Chosen Teacher of the Year

The Meridian School District's Teacher of the Year hails from the new ninth grade facility at Meridian High School.

Liz Garner Michael was first chosen by her peers as ninth grade teacher of the year. Then she was selected by a nominating committee to represent the district for state teacher of the year.

"All my life I wanted to teach, ever since I was in the 8th grade," said Michael. "So it's a dream come true and a dream realized. And I feel very blessed to have been able to realize my dream. I have been teaching for 29 years. And it's a love. I've always wanted to teach English as long as I can remember."

Michael said it's nice to be recognized for doing something that she loves. She says any of her colleagues at MHS ninth grade would have been great choices for teacher of the year.
