Each year MIPA awards an outstanding local preschool teacher with the honor of Exceptional Educator. This year we congratulate Talina Birashk, Pre-K teacher at St. Monica’s, for being selected as the MIPA Exceptional Educator of 2014!
We received many glowing nominations for Talina, which described her as “nurturing”, “passionate”, “strong”, and “loving”. One parent praised her amazing energy and said, “She makes learning so creative and fun for her students.”
Talina enjoyed a surprise award ceremony in her classroom on Tuesday in front of her students and a collection of parents and MIPA Board members. Nominations for next year’s award will be solicited next April.
