The Great American Teach-Off 2013: Round Two of Voting Begins Today!

This post is brought to you by GOOD with support from University of Phoenix

After receiving tons of votes from across the country last week, GOOD and University of Phoenix are proud to announce the sixteen finalists remaining for the Great American Teach-Off 2013.

From New Hampshire to Minnesota to California, innovative teachers in grades K through 6 and grades 7 through 12 are competing to each win one $10,000 classroom grant. And starting March 11 noon PT, they need your help to win the next round of voting.

For week two, you have until March 17 at midnight PT to make your vote count. You can vote up to once a day during each weekly voting period. The two teachers with the fewest votes each week will be eliminated, until we have one last teacher standing in each grade set.

See the eight finalists in grades K through 6 and 7 through 12 answering this week's question: What are you doing to make a difference? Then, vote for your favorite and spread the word.

Every Monday from now through April 7, we'll upload a new video at noon PT from the finalists. Over the course of the next four weeks, you can watch teachers respond to questions about how they're transforming education in their classrooms, then vote for your favorite educator to advance to the next round.

Let's help two deserving teachers continue their good work, one student at a time.
