HOLLY, Michigan -  Mr. Jeremiah Stieve, a middle school Social Studies teacher at Holly Academy, has been selected to be a panelist at Education Nation’s Teacher Town Hall this Saturday, March 23, 2013.  NBC Education Nation was started in September, 2010 as a year-round initiative to engage the country in a solutions-focused conversation about the state of education in America.

“As a passionate educator, I look forward to engaging in productive conversations with other educators about what is best for our students and the future of education,” Stieve said.  “Having the opportunity to sit down with other professionals and discuss the best ways to do that is always powerful!”

Stieve is one of 10 teachers from around the state representing Michigan’s charter schools.  “Regardless of where teachers teach, I feel we all have a common mission,” says Stieve.  “We are charged with preparing our students for the future to the best of our ability.”  Stieve has been a teacher at Holly Academy for more than 6 years, and recently received his Master of Arts, Educational Leadership from Oakland University.

NBC News Chief Education Correspondent Rehema Ellis, along with local WDIV anchors Carmen Harlan and Steve Garagiola will be covering the Teacher Town Hall.  The event will run from 7 – 8:30 p.m. at the Detroit Museum of African American History.  WDIV Channel 4 will broadcast the first hour of the Town Hall.  The event can be viewed in its entirety via live stream on the Education Nation website.
