A Kingsford High School teacher is one of 12 state educators to be recognized for improving education through the use of technology - receiving either first place or runner-up awards.
The Michigan Association for Computer Users in Learning (MACUL) presented the runner-up award to Jacqueline Leiker as the Outstanding Technology-Using Pre K-12 Classroom Teacher. The first place award went to Nicholas Provenzano of Grosse Pointe South High School.
Leiker was nominated for the award for providing professional development to other teachers in the Breitung Township Schools district on how to use technology in the classroom to engage students. She received the award during the opening keynote address at the MACUL conference in Detroit. There were 13 staff members from Breitung Township Schools in attendance and nearly 5,000 teachers from around the state at this conference.
