May 15 is the day Elyria High School teacher Stacie Starr takes her talents to New York City.
On that day, Starr, an intervention specialist with 14-year tenure in the district, will appear on the “Live with Kelly and Michael” show for a segment. Starr is one of five finalists in the show’s Top Teacher Search.
The nationally syndicated show, which appears locally on WEWS TV 5, announced Tuesday that Starr is a finalist in the nationwide contest. A field of 12 semifinalists was narrowed to five with online voting from viewers.
The week of May 12, each finalist will be featured, one per day. Afterward, online voting will resume. The winner will receive a 2015 Ford Escape.
