Those who dedicated themselves to the teaching profession are a vital and valuable resource for their school and community. With passion and dedication, they make it a priority to positively influence those they teach and prepare them for the future.

The Suburban Collection has been rewarding top teachers in its communities for the past sixteen years.. Each “Teacher of the Year” winner receives a new vehicle lease, of their choosing, complements of The Suburban Collection. The Collection is thrilled their business provides them the opportunity to express their gratitude to the men and women who give so much of education children.

Most recently, The Suburban Collection was happy to award a new car lease to Lisa Rice of the Novi Community School District. Through recommendations made by school administrators, Rice was nominated along with three other teachers for the award.  The Novi Educational Foundation board unanimously voted in Rice’s favor for Teacher of the Year. What made Ms. Rice stand out was a passionate letter from a parent, according to the Foundation Chairman Tom Smith. An example of how Lisa Rice goes above and beyond her duties as a teacher is her service on the Village Oaks Elementary Cultures of Thinking Committee, where Lisa works with parents and staff to implement new learning techniques that suit each individual child’s needs.

The Suburban Collection would like to thank Lisa Rice for all of her hard work and dedication.. For more than 24 years, Lisa has committed her time and energy to providing a quality education for all of her students.
