Birmingham educator named Alabama teacher of year

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — A Birmingham high school teacher has been named the 2013-2014 Alabama Teacher of the Year.

Alison Grizzle, a math teacher at P.D. Jackson Olin High School, will serve as the spokesperson and representative for teachers in Alabama for the next year.

State Superintendent of Education Tommy Bice made the announcement at a Wednesday celebration honoring the 12 semi-finalists and four finalists who were nominated for the coveted title.

Bice said Grizzle embodies all of the qualities he thinks of when using the term "teacher." He said she makes a difference in the lives of her students each and every day.

Tracy Pruitt, who has taught in Dothan for the past 23 years, is the 2013-2014 Alternate Teacher of the Year.
