To be eligible, nominees must teach in a public or nonpublic school, grades Pre-K through 12th grade, and spend at least half of their time working directly with students.
Nominees must also have a bachelor's degree and state teaching license, and must have at least three years of teaching experience.
The 2014 Minnesota Teacher of the Year will be named May 4.
