Bemidji Teacher of the Year

Every year, the executive board of the Bemidji Education Association recognizes educational staff. This year, the BEA gave out their annual awards under three categories, including Teacher of the Year. This year, Teacher of the Year was awarded to retired third grade teacher Mrs. Susan Richards from Northern Elementary School in Bemidji. Susan hopes to be back in the classroom at some point to do some substitute teaching and/or volunteer work.
