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.
As the winner, Hutchison will spend the next year speaking throughout the state and serving as an ambassador for Oklahoma teachers. She is also in the running for the title of National Teacher of the Year and will have the chance to meet the president at a summit in Washington, D.C.
