Every March, LIVE! With Kelly and Michael hold a contest to honor some of the best teachers around the country.

This year, we are excited to see a local teacher from Dartmouth, MA included in the semi-finals! Congratulations to Michael Cappello, who is an Adaptive Physical Education Teacher at Dartmouth Public Schools in Dartmouth, Mass.

Each year, the contest looks to honor teachers that work hard to make their schools and communities better, and to thank them for their commitment and dedication to their students. All teachers are eligible, from public or private schools, from pre-kindergarten through grade 12.

You can vote for Mr. Cappello until 5pm today by clicking here:

Tomorrow, April 29th, Kelly and Michael will announce the Top 5 Finalists, and they will get to travel to NYC and be on live TV with Kelly and Michael during the week of May 12th thru the 16th!  The teacher chosen as the 2014 Top Teacher will be announced the following week on Live! with Kelly and Michael.

Congratulations to Mr. Cappello for being nominated!  We are all rooting for you to win!!
