Michigan Teacher Leadership Advisory Council (MTLAC)
- 2020-2021 Regional Teachers of the Year
The Regional Teachers of the Year, including the Michigan Teacher of the Year (MTOY), form the Michigan Teacher Leadership Advisory Council (MTLAC). During their year of service, the group of teacher leaders representing ten regions across Michigan regularly meet to share issues of importance to teachers and students with MDE, as well to provide input on proposed state and department initiatives.
The MTLAC began in 2017 with 24 educators from across Michigan applying directly to the MDE for selection to the advisory council before shifting to its current format in 2018-19 with membership determined through the MTOY program application process.
