A few teachers around the country each year are surprised at their school assembly with a national award for excellence in teaching. The Milken Educator Awards are sometimes referred to as the "Oscars of Teaching." This year, a local teacher was one of the winners.
Matt Hajdun teaches 4th and 5th graders at Champlain Elementary School in Burlington. He spoke with Vermont Edition about his award.
