The latest #proudMIeducator video features Steven Loonsfoot, an elementary/middle school educator in Shepherd Public School District, and proud tribal member of the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community.

While the video shows that he is a successful and popular educator among his peer educators and students, Mr. Loonsfoot adds that “it’s a huge thing for Indigenous people to have a presence in the schools.”
