GB Band Teacher Named "Teacher of the Year" by MSBOA

Jacob Finkbeiner of the Music Education team at GBCS has recently been named Michigan School Band & Orchestra Association (MSBOA) "Teacher of the Year"!

We found out this week that our Grand Blanc West Middle School Band Director has been selected by his peers!

In one of the letters of support an individual wrote, “During this time of online learning, Jake has stepped forward to create lesson plans that are meaningful and fun for all middle school students throughout the district.  He has pushed me to be a better educator and person.” 

Join us in congratulating Mr. Finkbeiner on this amazing achievement!
