Faculty to give personal Educator of the Year plaque to the teacher who changed his life

Miguel Fernandez was "a directionless kid from a bad neighborhood with nothing to read at home beyond TV Guide."

Then he met Mr. Broderick, a veteran and sixth grade teacher in Harlem "who pounded in the message that educational curiosity could lead a person anywhere." Broderick forever changed Miguel's life for the better.

Last year, Miguel received the Gilbert Community Excellence Award as Educator of the Year from Chandler-Gilbert Community College, an award he will present to Broderick in Chicago later this month. Read Miguel's personal story on the TED blog titled, "Finding Mr. Broderick: How a TED Talk launched my search for the teacher who changed my life."
