Jenna Gampel, a 2nd grade teacher at Conservatory Lab Charter School in the Brighton neighborhood in Boston, was honored yesterday as a 2014 Massachusetts Teacher of the Year finalist by Governor Deval Patrick, Secretary of Education Matthew Malone, and other state and local education officials.

“Teachers are doing the most important work in America today,” said Secretary Malone. “It is opportunities such as this where we honor the best but also recognize that they represent thousands more who are the unsung heroes of our cities and towns.”
