Elise Frederic had no idea she would be standing up to address students, colleagues, dignitaries and media at her surprise Milken Educator Award notification today! With Milken Educator Awards Founder Lowell Milken looking on, she shares some thoughts with the assembly. "I'm inspired every day by all the people in this room," she says. "It feels good to know that maybe I'm inspiring other people too."
“Only when society demonstrates respect for educators will the brightest and most capable students choose it as their profession.” - Lowell Milken
