2017-18 Milken EducatorsPhoto 16 of 44
On December 7, 2017, Lafayette Parish in Louisiana got its very first Milken Educator: Angela Boxie, who teaches sixth-grade math at Edgar Martin Middle School. Angela's students shrieked with excitement when Lowell Milken called their teacher's name and crushed her for a congratulatory group hug. One of Angela's superpowers is getting students to love math, rather than just learn it. When Lowell visited Angela's classroom after her surprise notification, he asked the sixth-graders to raise their hands if they really loved math. Nearly every hand shot up!
