Best Places to Teach in Michigan

So much emphasis is put on schools and how well they rate for our children. And don't get me wrong, that's incredibly important. But let's take a moment to think about our schools and how they rate for our teachers.

Teachers are a critically important yet vastly underappreciated role to play in our society. they're helping to shape our children and our future. So, it's important that teachers have a good school experience too, right?

We want teachers that feel supported, both by school staff and parents. We want teachers that are paid appropriately. And finally, we want teachers to be able to enjoy their jobs by making sure they have the supplies they need.
