Recently, Maureen Martin, a special education teacher, and consultant with Birmingham Public Schools was announced as the Birmingham Teacher of the Year during a surprise celebration. For the past 43 years Martin has served as an integral part of the Birmingham school district including as Birmingham Education Association Union president for ten.

Fischer, “Recognizing and rewarding outstanding teachers is our way of showing gratitude to the men and women who contribute so much to the development of our children. We feel fortunate our organization has been able to provide a special thank you to top educators for the past sixteen years in the communities in which we do business.”

The Suburban Collection has been proud to give these incredible educators the recognition and praise they deserve. Teachers spend countless hours working with our children, helping to shape them into young adults.
