Friday we welcomed Minnesota's newest Teacher of the Year, Corey Bulman!
Bulman was chosen from 132 candidates, 27 semifinalists and 11 finalists. He is the first recipient from the Westonka district and the 53rd overall to be honored with the award, presented by Education Minnesota, an 86,000-member statewide educators union.
In his Teacher of the Year portfolio, Bulman said he struggled as a young student, but then he met a group of dedicated high school teachers who saw his potential. “This educational experience taught me an important lesson: education is a gift that is renewed every time it is shared,” Bulman wrote. “This fact has driven me to give to others what I was so graciously given all those years ago.”
Bulman has taught at Mound Westonka High School since 2000, his entire teaching career. He holds a master’s degree in English education from the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities.
