WITN's Teacher of the Week for Wednesday, May 28th, 2014 is Grant Michel from Riverside High School in Martin County.
Mr. Michel has been teaching for eleven years, all at the same school, and also serves as the school's band director.
He received his undergraduate degree from Mars Hill College in Asheville and his Master's at East Carolina University in Greenville.
Michel says being the band director gives him the unique opportunity to work with students for all four years of their high school career. He says it's remarkable to meet students as incoming freshmen and then see them graduate as confident young adults during their senior year.
Michel is proud of his band's accomplishments. The Riverside High School Marching Band was recently named the 2013 State Champions when they competed at the U.S. Bands National Championship.
Congratulations, Mr. Michel!
