She was among the 128 candidates from across the state that a selection panel of 25 community leaders chose the Teacher of the Year semi-finalists from. The group will meet again in late March to select 10 finalists, and the Teacher of the Year will then be announced during the annual Education Minnesota banquet on May 4th in Bloomington.
