2013–14 Milken Educator Awards HighlightsPhoto 17 of 42
We hope that Melissa Leisner of Prairie Knolls Middle School in Elgin, IL, will continue to be a teacher for many more years but she has a new role as well. The leaders helping her hold up her $25,000 check represent a new circle of colleagues and a new platform Melissa can use to champion the cause of quality education for every child.
