Sommerness named Teacher of the Year


Mike Sommerness, Pequot Lakes middle level and high school band teacher, was named 2013 Teacher of the Year by his peers on Tuesday, May 28.

Following the announcement, three students played a tune from the balcony over the cafeteria where staff gathered at Eagle View Elementary School.

Karen Jacobson, choir teacher at Pequot Lakes High School who works alongside Sommerness, said the school is “privileged to have a teacher of his caliber.”
