Alabama’s 2019-2020 Teacher of the Year is preparing to hit the road to represent the state department of education over the next year. Ana Carolina Behel got behind the wheel of a new 2019 Chevrolet Traverse yesterday in Montgomery. Behel will use the SUV through May 2020 to travel the state as a spokesperson for the Alabama State Department of Education.
Behel is a National Board Certified English Language Development Teacher who teaches English as a Second Language at Weeden Elementary School in Florence. She is Alabama’s official candidate for the National Teacher of the Year award. Alfa Insurance sponsors the year’s use of the vehicle, while the Farmer’s Federation covers the cost of auto insurance provided through Alfa.
