Two St. Louis Park educators are semifinalists for Minnesota Teacher of the Year.
Meredith Homans and Arika Mareck were included on a list released by Education Minnesota on Tuesday morning. They were named candidates earlier this month.
Homans is a language arts teacher at St. Louis Park Middle School. Mareck is an English teacher at St. Louis Park High School.
Last year, psychology and social studies teacher Greg Goddard was a semifinalist and then a finalist for the award.
In 2011, two from the district—Mike Farrell and Peter Redmond—were Teacher of the Year candidates. Redmond went on to be a finalist.
