LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A Lincoln math teacher has been named this year’s Nebraska Teacher of the Year.

State Education Department officials surprised Amber Vlasnik with the award Tuesday at Lincoln High School, where she also coaches other teachers.

The 30-year-old was awarded her education degree at the University of Nebraska at Kearney in 2008, did her student teaching in Houston, Texas, and then taught math at Lincoln’s Southeast High School before joining the Lincoln High staff.,

She’ll be eligible for the National Teacher of the Year Award and will participate in several national professional development programs.
