A teacher from Cleveland, Tenn., has been selected as one of the finalists in “Live’s Top Teacher Search,” a contest spun off the TV show “Live with Kelly and Michael.”

Athena Davis, an English teacher at Cleveland High School, is one of five teachers nominated for the award, which honors teachers who help make their schools and communities better.

Davis was chosen from a pool of 12 semi-finalists. Viewers picked the finalists through online voting held from Friday, April 25, until Monday, April 28.

The finalists will travel to New York City from May 12-16 to be showcased on the show, hosted by Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan. The winner will be announced the week of May 19.
