Lawrence Public Schools Superintendent John Overley introduced Lawrence Elementary teacher Misty Balkema to Lawrence Elementary students last week as one of four finalists for state Teacher of the Year. Balkema, a fifth and sixth grade social studies teacher, has been with the district since 2007. Balkema will travel to Lansing April 19, where the selection process will include interviews with the finalists. Overley said it is a ‘remarkable accomplishment,” as he praised Balkema.
