Imlay City Educators Featured in Newest proudMIeducator Video

LANSING – The latest Michigan educators to be featured in the #proudMieducator video series are a married couple who teach theater and dance to students in Lapeer County.

The #proudMIeducator video features Don and Rebekah Brewer of Imlay City Community Schools.

Mr. and Ms. Brewer are instructors for the Imlay City High School Theatre and Dance Program, which has earned an MDE Career & Technical Education accreditation. Imlay City High School Theatre and Dance Program is recognized as an approved college and career training ground in the visual and performing arts.

“It is important for us to continue highlighting the voices of educators,” said State Superintendent Dr. Michael Rice. “The #proudMIeducator campaign is one way we honor the hard work of passionate educators, such as the Brewers. We hope that others will consider a career in education after hearing their story.”

Increasing the number of certified teachers, especially in areas of shortage, is one of the eight goals of Michigan’s strategic education plan. 

Since 2016, the #proudMIeducator series has featured educators and supporters of Michigan educators who share their passion for education. The full playlist can be found on the MDE YouTube page.
