Lila King from the Engadine Schools joins us as this week's Michigan Lottery Excellence in Education Award winner.
Paula Sutterfield sent in a video and stated "Lila works hard, she's invested. No one gets into the teaching profession if they don't want to see kids succeed. Mrs. King is excellence in education."
Lila stated "I've always loved being around kids. Once I had my first experience with the classroom and kids I knew it was what I wanted to do. Watching these kids when you have taught something and they have finally figured it out on their own and can actually move forward is just a good feeling for any teacher."
Lila receives a $1500 check from the Michigan Lottery and her class in the Engadine Schools receives a $500 grant.
