Delliger said she was surprised when she heard the news. “I am honestly humbled and honored to represent the amazing Anoka-Hennepin teachers, staff, and learners. I have the best job in the world, and I am excited to go to work every single day.”
Delliger noted that both semifinalists from Anoka-Hennepin serve adult learners in some capacity. "I think it is an important nod to the commitment Anoka-Hennepin has for meeting the needs of the full range of academic needs for our community."
In the coming weeks, a panel will re-review all the semifinalists’ portfolios and video submissions. They will then select approximately 10 finalists. On May 3, current Minnesota Teacher of the Year, Jessica Davis, will announce her successor during a banquet at the Saint Paul RiverCentre.
Metro North ABE is so proud to have Amber on our team. We wish her the best as the Minnesota Teacher of the Year process continues.
Anoka-Hennepin Community Education (Anoka-Hennepin Schools) partners with eight other community education programs in the north metro to offer free adult basic education (ABE) classes for adults ages 17 and up who are not enrolled in a secondary school program develop basic skills. Together, the community education programs are called "Metro North ABE."
