 The “Sweet 16” Finalists have been selected from a group of dedicated elementary and secondary school educators who were chosen by their school districts as candidates for Alabama’s 2013-2014 Tea-cher of the Year.
    Ivalee teacher Farrah Kilgo is among that select group of finalists, representing District 8.
    The field will soon be narrowed down to the “Final Four,” with the Teacher of the Year winner being revealed at a ceremony hosted by the Alabama State Department of Education on May 8 at 6:30 p.m. at the RSA Plaza Terrace.
    “The educators nominated for this prestigious award nurture the character, intellect, and talent of Alabama’s students,” said Dr. Tommy Bice, State Superintendent of Education.
    “They exemplify teaching at its best and we are proud to have them teaching in our state.”
    Alabama’s Teacher of the Year spends the majority of the school year serving as the spokesperson for education and the teaching profession as well as presenting workshops to various groups.
    Additionally, Alabama’s representative is a candidate for the National Tea-cher of the Year.
An elementary and secondary teacher was nominated from each of the eight Alabama State Board of Education districts in March. A member of the Alabama State Board of Education, the local board of education, a local superintendent or representative, the current district Teachers of the Year, and a representative from higher education served as committee members in selecting the finalists.
