Luis Munoz Marin teacher receives national award

(Plain Press, June 2006) Lisa Suarez-Caraballo, a bilingual teacher at Luis Munoz Marin Middle School in Cleveland, receives $25,000 from Milken Family Foundation Chairman and Co-Founder Lowell Milken at the 2006 Milken Family Foundation National Education Conference in Washington, D.C. on May 18, 2006.

Suarez-Caraballo was one of three Ohio teachers presented with $25,000 checks – a Milken National Educator Award – at a prestigious black-tie gala that Teacher Magazine calls the “Oscars of Teaching.”  Ninety-one awards were given to teachers across the United States. The event was held at the Renaissance Hotel in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, May 18, 2006.

The largest national teacher recognition program in the U.S., the Milken National Educator Awards were established in 1985.  Since then, the Foundation has given over $54 million to exceptional K-12 educators across the nation. Teachers, principals and specialists from 48 states and the District of Columbia were recognized.
