Each year, state education officials recognize one teacher in Massachusetts who rises above the rest when it comes to dedication to students and education. This year, a 27-year-old high school teacher from New Bedford was given this distinction.

WCAI's Kathryn Eident talked with Takeru Nagayoshi about the award and how his work set him apart from thousands of other teachers throughout the state.
