Natalia Benjamin, an English learner and ethnic studies teacher in Rochester, was one of five educators who took home the Horace Mann Award for Teaching Excellence this year.

A Rochester educator is being recognized by the National Education Association for a commitment to equity, diversity and her work engaging the Century High School community.

Natalia Benjamin, Minnesota's 2021 teacher of the year, was one of five educators who last week received the Horace Mann Award for Teaching Excellence in Washington, D.C.

Benjamin, who teaches English as a second language, was nominated by Education Minnesota, the statewide teachers union. The national union then assesses nominees based on their leadership inside and outside the classroom and their commitment to equity and diversity.
