A Kodiak High School teacher is one of the finalists for Alaska Teacher of the Year.
On Friday the State Department of Education and Early Development named Darcy Glagolich as one of four teachers in the running for the honor.
The Alaska Teacher of the Year, and an alternate, will be chosen by a committee made up of members of leading educational associations, along with the current Teacher of the Year, Robert Williams of Colony High School.
The committee will meet October 21st to consider written applications, a video of each teacher on the job, and an interview with each candidate.
The Alaska Teacher of the Year will speak at education conferences and participate in education working groups across the state.
If Glagolich is selected as Alaska Teacher of the Year, she will also become a nominee for national teacher of the year.
