Rachel Faber, a social studies teacher at Huron High School, was recently nominated for Michigan Department of Education’s teacher of the year.

According to the MDE, the Michigan teacher of the year (MTOY) is the spokesperson for Michigan’s more than 100,000 teachers.

The MTOY attends all State Board of Education meetings as a non-voting member of the board. Additionally, the MTOY has the opportunity to meet with the state superintendent, governor of Michigan, president of the united states, and other state and national teachers of the year.

The MTOY is also Michigan’s applicant for national teacher of the year (NTOY) and attends four national conferences through the NTOY program, including attendance at Space Camp in Huntsville, Ala.

The MTOY has the opportunity through Walden University for a full scholarship to the Richard W. Riley College of Education and Leadership programs.

The MTOY also brings recognition to the district they represent, and has expanded opportunities for advancement in the field of education.

State Rep. Darrin Camilleri (D-Brownstown Township) was reelected to represent the 23rd District during the 2018 election.

“I’m immensely proud of our team of volunteers and supporters who worked so hard to carry our message to voters across Downriver,” Camilleri said in a statement Wednesday morning.

“It’s because of your continued support, your belief, and your collective action that we were able to be successful here tonight. Thank you for fighting alongside me every day as we work toward better opportunity for all Downriver families.”

Camilleri congratulated Republican challenger Michael Frazier on a good campaign and thanked voters across Downriver for their support during the election cycle.

“Throughout my first term in office, I’ve fought for the issues that Downriver families care about–quality healthcare, clean water, excellent public schools, and a Downriver that’s built to last. I’m excited and ready to continue our fight for a stronger Downriver, and with supporters like ours, I believe that anything is possible.”

Camilleri said that since being elected, he and his team have knocked on over 30,000 doors and made nearly 20,000 phone calls to constituents to talk about the issues facing Downriver.

In Huron Township, Camilleri received 3,287 votes to Frazier’s 3,284 votes in a very close race.

The 23rd District includes the communities of Brownstown Township, Gibraltar, Grosse Ile Township, Huron Township, Trenton, and Woodhaven.
