This week Education Minnesota announced the list of nominated teachers for Teacher of the Year. There are many more rounds in the selection process before the Teacher of the Year is chosen. But even if I make it no further in the process, I am proud to be listed among so many wonderful teachers! It is humbling to be on a list with such excellence. Our own Lakeville has three teachers that were nominated. In addition to my nomination, Christopher Clifford and Kari Dykhoff, both teachers here in Lakeville were also nominated.
