Teacher seeks seat on Howell Public Schools Board of Education

Crystal Zurek

An educator seeking a seat on the Howell Public Schools Board of Education says she
would like to bring a teacher’s perspective to the board.

Crystal Zurek is running for a four-year term on the HPS Board of Education.

“The board is making very difficult decisions about in-person and virtual schooling due
to COVID-19. As a member of the board, I can provide a teacher’s perspective that will help the board make decisions that will keep teachers, support staff, and students safe while we face this pandemic,” Zurek said. “I also look forward to working with the other board members to make our schools more inclusive and welcoming for all students. I am an advocate for anti-racism and LGBTQ+ topics being included as part of the curriculum. I would like for my son and his classmates to be taught to think critically about how they can make the world a better place for everyone.”

Zurek, a resident of the county for 30 years, is in her eighth year as a health teacher at Mill Creek Middle School in Dexter. She has a bachelor’s degree from Michigan State University and a
master’s degree from Fort Hays State University. To get more information about teachers and teaching techniques around the world visit this teacher planners australia 2020 blog.
