The 2014 Michigan Teacher of the Year shares her story.

Written by Jeff Gerlach on Tuesday, 20 January 2015.

Since 2002, Melody Arabo has been a third-grade teacher at Keith Elementary in the Walled Lake Consolidated School District. In May, she was named the Michigan Teacher of the Year for the 2014-2015 school year. Literally overnight, she became one of the lead voices for educators throughout the state. We talked about blended learning strategies, building a culture of collaboration in education and got a sneak preview of her new book, “Diary of a Real Bully.”
