2017-18 Milken EducatorsPhoto 20 of 44
There's nothing more inspiring than watching a room full of middle school students cheering, fist-pumping and jumping for joy when a teacher wins a Milken Educator Award. On January 2, 2018, Neal Cronkite's students raised the roof at Washington Woods Middle School in Holt, where the fifth-grade science and math teacher became Michigan's 2017-18 Milken Educator. Do they adore him because he plays his guitar in class, helps them monitor their own progress toward learning milestones, or creates a kind and respectful school culture? All of the above, and more.
