MAPLETON, N.D. — Kayla Delzer, who teaches third grade at Mapleton Elementary School, is one of four finalists for the 2019 North Dakota Teacher of the Year award.

North Dakota School Superintendent Kirsten Baesler plans to visit Mapleton Elementary to recognize Delzer at 11 a.m. Friday, Sept. 14.

Baesler also intends to visit two other finalists Friday in Grand Forks and New Rockford, said Dale Wetzel, a spokesman for the state Department of Public Instruction. The fourth visit is set for next week in Minot, he said.

After those visits, the Teacher of the Year award will be announced at a ceremony later this month, Wetzel said.
