Stacie Starr, an alumna of Ashland University’s Elyria Center, was named the top teacher as part of the “Top Teacher Search” on the TV show “LIVE with Kelly and Michael.”

Starr had been selected as one of five national finalists for the “Top Teacher Search” and the final voting took place this past week with the announcement of the winner being made on Tuesday's show. Starr received a 2015 Ford Escape as the grand prize award.

While at Ashland University, Starr was an elementary education/education of the handicapped major through the Schar College of Education. She received her Bachelor of Science degree in Education from Ashland University in the summer of 2002. Currently, she is employed as an intervention specialist at Elyria High School.

In March, “LIVE” announced the annual search to honor teachers across the country and Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan named the top 12 finalists April 25 on "LIVE with Kelly and Michael."

Viewers voted for their five favorites and the top five were announced on LIVE April 29. All five traveled to New York City for taping shows to be aired during “LIVE Top Teacher Week” May 12-16.

After each finalist was featured during the week of May 12, viewers voted for the Top Teacher. See the announcement of the winner of the “Top Teacher Search” at --   http://livekellyandmichael.dad t.com/uncategorized/top- teacher/.
