The Birmingham City Schools District celebrated a huge accomplishment.
A teacher from the district is the Alabama's Teacher of the Year. Alison Grizzle is a math teacher at Jackson Olin High School. Grizzle was selected out of 12 semi-finalists from all across the state.
"I'm just very honored and blessed to be representing the state of Alabama." Grizzle said, "I think that we have some great things going on and it's hard to know that sometimes."
She, along with the Birmingham's Elementary Teacher of the Year and the teachers who received their National Board Certification, will be recognized by the Birmingham City Council Tuesday.
Grizzle now has the chance to apply and potentially become the National Teacher of the Year.
