A math teacher from Fairview has been named the 2013 Oklahoma Teacher of the Year.

Elaine Hutchison was named at a ceremony Tuesday at the Oklahoma State Fair.

Hutchison teaches math at Fairview High School, Chamberlain Middle School and the Oklahoma School of Science and Mathematics Regional Center in Fairview. She is also the high school assistant girls basketball coach. She has 19 years of experience and has National Board Certification.

She was selected from a dozen regional finalists from across the state. Contestants submit portfolios and videos, and then they go through individual and group interviews earlier this month.
