Finalists have been announced for the 2014 Tennessee Teacher of the Year, and a local educator is on the list.

News 5 has learned the nine finalists are elementary, middle and high school educators from each division of the state.

In our region, Christopher Bowen of Liberty Bell Middle School in Johnson City is one of the finalists.

The Tennessee Teacher of the Year will be chosen from the nine finalists this fall and will represent the Volunteer State in the National Teacher of the Year competition.
