Two Northwest suburban teachers are among the nine finalists for the Illinois State Board of Education's 2012-2013 Illinois Teacher of the Year award, which will be announced on Oct. 20.

The Northwest suburbs are represented by Andrew Conneen, a political science teacher at Adlai E. Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire, and Brian Curtin, an English teacher at Schaumburg High School in Schaumburg.

More than 200 nominations were reviewed this year by a selection committee comprised of administrators, teachers, educational service personnel, student support personnel and past Illinois Teacher of the Year winners.
