Carl Spina from the Saline Middle School District joins us as this week's Michigan Lottery Excellence in Education Award winner.
"He's consistently pushing his students to strive for the highest levels of achievement. I'm so thankful and honored to know Carl."
"In high school I was certain that I did not want to be a teacher. It just was not something I was interested in and then I had some opportunities to work with young people while still I was in high school. It was rewarding right away from my first few days in the classroom that this was something that I wanted to do with my life. It wasn't the money, it wasn't the prestige of the career, it was the opportunity to work with people to make a difference."
Carl receives a $1500 check from the Michigan Lottery and her class at East Jordan Middle High School receives a $500 grant.
