Four Local Teachers Among Finalists for Top State Honor
Three elementary school teachers and one career and technical education teacher are state finalists for the title of 2009 Maine Teacher of the Year.
They were selected from an original nominee list of nine. They had to present a professional portfolio detailing their work as well as write oral presentations.
Finalists will now meet with a panel educators for a final interview.
The winner will be announced by state Education Commissioner Susan Gendron at a surprise all-school assembly later this month.
