A teacher at the Frederick H. Tuttle Middle School in South Burlington is Vermont's 2013 teacher of the year.
Jay Hoffman, a technology education teacher, was honored Tuesday during a special meeting of the state Board of Education.
As teacher of the year, Hoffman will visit schools around the state and work with teachers. He is also a candidate for the National Teacher of the Year award.
This spring, Hoffman will travel to Washington, D.C., for a reception at the White House.
