Teacher of the the Month

We are so pleased to congratulate Parke Lane Elementary’s 2nd Grade Teacher Mrs. Melissa Morin with State Representative Jaime Churches' Teacher of the Month award.

Jaime Churches shares, "her relentless dedication to her students at Park Lane Elementary School has proven that she is a model leader in the classroom and in our Grosse Ile community. She has continually encouraged and inspired students, fostering a clear love for education in young minds across the community.

After hearing from colleagues and community members about your incredible work ethic, positive attitude, and great work with students in and outside of the classroom, it is obvious you are incredibly deserving of this special recognition.

As an educator myself and former colleague of hers I am so overjoyed to know that Downriver has teachers like her to ensure that every student gets the education and experiences they deserve.

Please welcome me in thanking her for all of the hard work, time, and care she puts into her work. She has more than earned the title of Teacher of the Month, and if I can ever be of any support, please don't hesitate to reach out."
