Two Eden Prairie Educators Named 2018 Minnesota Teacher of the Year Candidates

Daniel DeMarce and Tara Jones, both teachers within the Eden Prairie Public Schools district, are among the 167 candidates in the running for the 2018 Minnesota Teacher of the Year Award from Education Minnesota.

According to Education Minnesota’s release, these educators are among an incredible field of candidates. In fact, the number of candidates named this was a near-record this year. The award has been around for 54 years, and this year has the most candidates since 1981.

DeMarce, Jones and other candidates have all accepted their nominations, and have completed the necessary materials to be eligible for the honor. Now, a 25-member panel will narrow the candidates to semi-finalists and then finalists in the coming months, with the winner being announced at an annual banquet on May 6 at the Radisson Blu at Mall of America in Bloomington, MN.

Check out the full list of candidates.
