Rep. Maureen Stapleton
Rep. Maureen Stapleton has spent most of her adult life working to help children. She spent six years as a teacher in the Detroit School System and six more years in Detroit’s Youth Department.

Her leadership has been crucial to the passage of legislation to elevate the teaching profession by assuring all teachers are treated fairly regardless of seniority, while also seeking to ensure every child in Michigan is assigned a high quality teacher.
