LANSING, Mich. — The Michigan Lottery has played a big role in funding education in our state, which is why it has teamed up with FOX 47 News to recognize excellent educators state-wide.
Jennifer Harris, a teacher at Allen Elementary in Ann Arbor is this week's Michigan Lottery Excellence in Education award winner. In her nomination video, Martha Wilson says, "I don't know anyone who defines Excellence better than Jennifer and I have seen her work so hard for over 25 years."
Jennifer commented, "I love children, every job I've had has involved working with children and I can’t imagine doing anything else. That excitement of when they get it and they are proud of themselves for achieving it, there's nothing better."
Jennifer was recognized with a $1,500 check from the Michigan Lottery and her school will receive a $500 grant!
