Juan Carlos Lozano, a Baker College student, has been named Michigan’s Student Teacher of the Year by the Michigan Association of Teacher Educators (MATE). Placing third in the statewide competition is another Baker College student, Wendy Roehl.
The two Baker College students will be recognized for their exemplary teaching skills at the MATE spring conference, Saturday, April 18, in Jackson.
As Michigan’s Student Teacher of the Year, Lozano will represent the state in the student teacher competition of the National Association of Teacher Educators.
“Juan and Wendy are truly outstanding, and we are extremely proud of them and their accomplishments,” said Christine M. Schram, Ph.D., dean of the Baker College School of Education. “Their success is reflective of the quality of Baker College instructors and our strong teacher preparation program in which nearly 600 students are currently enrolled throughout the state.”
