Welcome to DeTour Arts and Technology Academy!
I am a native of the EUP, having attended K-12 school at the neighboring district of Pickford, where I participated in many sports and was a state officer in a nationally recognized student led community service organization. After my high school graduation in 1998, I attended Northern Michigan University, where I obtained a Bachelor's degree in elementary education. I began teaching at Ojibwe Charter School, then moved back to my alma matter of Pickford where I continued to teach elementary classes, as well as middle school social studies, and elementary technology. For the 2014-2015 school year, I was hired to take on the interrum role of Assistant K-12 Principal of Pickford. Most recently, I received a masters degree in educational adminstration from NMU as well.
I have lived in Raber with my husband, Scott, since 2004, and have two sons who attend school here in DeTour. I enjoy sports of all kinds, spending time riding horses, working with our 4-H animals, helping in our family sawmill business, 4wheeling, and snowmobiling.
I am a life long learner and feel that schools provide an opportunity for both students and adults to learn new things everyday. My goal as an educator is to create an environment where learning is exciting. I see the role of an educator as one that mentors students to become productive, responsible, and contributing members of society.
Living in the rural U.P., I feel there is great value in small town living. No other place on Earth can offer our children what this area can. We need to share those lessons with the world, which is why staying connected to people outside of the area is important. Please feel free to follow me on Twitter @brookemaciag.
