St. Louis Park Public Schools Music Teacher and Director of Secondary Choirs John Myszkowski is one of 36 semifinalists for the 2020 Minnesota Teacher of the Year Award after a selection panel of 24 community leaders narrowed the field from the initial 135 candidates. Myszkowski has taught in St. Louis Park Public Schools since 1991.

The panel will now review the semifinalists’ portfolios and video submissions in late March in order to select approximately 10 finalists.

The 2020 Minnesota Teacher of the Year will be announced Sunday, May 3 at the St. Paul RiverCentre. Now in its 56th year, the Minnesota Teacher of the Year program is the oldest and most prestigious recognition program in Minnesota to honor excellence in education.
