2018 Wisconsin Teacher of the Year Matthew Miller honors his late grandfather, an American history scholar who greatly influenced Miller’s approach to teaching. Miller has been guided by his grandfather’s vision of leadership and community, and has tried to take learning beyond the classroom in order to make a difference. The ‘Lessons from Teachers of the Year’ series is a partnership between Google for Education and CCSSO that aims to elevate the teaching profession and capture the thinking of some of the United States’ best educators.
