Two teachers from our area have been nominated for the 2019 Pennsylvania Teacher of the Year.

The PA Department of Education (PDE) announced that Marilyn Pryle, of Abington Heights School District, and Ann Franzosa, of Hazleton Area School District, were nominated.

Pryle and Franzosa are among 10 other finalists chosen from across the state Monday.

Nominations were submitted by students, parents, peers, and members of the community.

PDE says the finalists must be prepared to effectively carry out the duties of the state's Teacher of the Year, including being PA's nominee for the National Teacher of the Year.

The 2019 Pennsylvania Teacher of the Year will be announced in December 2018 in Hershey at the SAS Institute.
