LIVONIA — ACE Programs of Genesee Community College recently announced that Tracie Meyers has been selected as the 2017-18 ACE Teacher of the Year.
Tracie has been teaching ACE courses since 2004 and is currently approved to teach BUS101, CIS02, OFT101, PED251 and PED258. After earning her Master’s in Education, Tracie worked a few semesters as an adjunct at MCC before landing in Livonia in 1993. She says she has never wanted to leave because in her words, “The people in the district, staff and students, are truly amazing.”
Tracie goes above and beyond to offer experiential learning and believes the more hands-on the better. The Principles of Business students participate in the ACE Virtual Business program and the Junior Achievement Titan challenge. Sports Marketing students participate in a social media marketing simulation called Mimic Social. Business math students do the H&R Block budget challenge and Keyboarding students have in-class competitions for accuracy and speed. In the ACE program, high school students are able to earn dual high school and college credit while taking the courses at their high school.
Outside of the classroom, Tracie is the coordinator for the Livonia Lunch and Learn Program that brings alumni back to school during lunch to talk to students about their careers and the path they took to get there. She is also on the Health and Wellness Committee and is the high school ski club advisor. Tracie lives in Livonia with her husband, Dave, who is an instrumental music teacher at the Brighton middle school. They have two children, Brendan and Lila.
