East Lake Elementary educator Jesse Diaz is a favorite among his students. And his commitment to making learning engaging caught the attention of KMSP Fox 9 in Minneapolis, who named Diaz their 2018 Teacher of the Year.
Diaz, a second-grade teacher, was nominated by a parent for the award. Along with the incredible honor, Diaz also received $900 from Royal Credit Union to put toward resources for his classroom.
Don’t miss the airing of his award ceremony tonight on Fox 9 at 5 p.m., 5:30 p.m., 6 p.m., 9 p.m., and 10 p.m. It will also air during the Thursday morning and afternoon newscasts.
