PROUD MILFORD MOMENT! Josh Haney, Project Lead the Way (PLTW) Gateway to Technology instructor at Milford Junior High School, is one of just 79 teachers nationwide to be named a 2021-2022 PLTW Outstanding Teacher of the Year!
Congratulations Mr. Haney!
Mr. Haney teaches Gateway to Technology, an engineering program offered by Great Oaks Career Campuses in partnership with Milford Junior High School. He teaches both Design and Modeling and Automation and Robotics classes.
He has created a Robotics Club for his students, which is one of the strongest clubs in the region. The Robotics booster club raises $10,000 a year in donations to support the students’ activities.
Mr. Haney is one of two instructors in the Milford program, which is so popular that the Automation & Robotics Class (an 8th grade elective class) is taken by 40% of the class. He has been a Great Oaks Gateway to Technology instructor for 9 years.
As an Outstanding Teacher of the Year, Haney will be asked to share his knowledge with other instructors through blogs, webinars, and interviews. Mr. Haney is also a Master Teacher for Project Lead the Way and trains new teachers in the summer.
