Faculty and Staff

We are very proud of our entire staff, many of whom have been part of our community for over 20 years. This longevity is a testimony to the stability and growth that characterizes MICH.

Our most precious resource next to our children is our staff. Their experience, education, and attitude shape and mold our children everyday.
