McKenzie Honored As Teacher Of The Year

Lulu Ross Elementary teacher Michele McKenzie has been honored as ‘Teacher of the Year’ for the Milford School District. Chosen from teachers among 7 Milford schools, Michele will have the honor of representing Milford School District as she competes for the Delaware Teacher of the Year Award.

“I was in a lot of shock and very excited,” commented Ms. McKenzie when asked her feelings when she received the news. “There are so many people in the Milford School District that work so hard so I know it must have been a tough decision.”

Michele has been teaching at Lulu Ross Elementary School for the past five years and was a paraprofessional for several years prior. She has taught intensive learning for second to fifth grade students and currently teaches fifth grade inclusion classes as well as performing as a case manager for fifth grade special education files. Michele has also coached the Milford High School Swim Team for the last 4 years.

“Working with the elementary kids is a lot of fun,” commented Michele. “You get to celebrate their successes every day.”

Michele is a 2000 Milford High School graduate. She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Economics from the University of Delaware and her Master’s Degree in Special Education from Wilmington University. Ms. McKenzie will join teachers from around the state of Delaware in June to compete for the Delaware Teacher of the Year Award. She will start preparing now for the competition that is administered by the Delaware Department of Education.

“I hope that this award reinforces the hard work that teachers do every day,” commented Ms. McKenzie. “We love the kids we work with and look forward to sharing their successes.”
