One of Eden Prairie’s middle school teachers won the Minnesota Middle School Association’s Middle Level Educator of the Year Award, according to the association’s website.

Janine Olson teaches special education at Central Middle School (CMS) and received the recognition for her “outstanding” work across 26 years of teaching at the school, the website says.

The honoree receives $250 for their school and a recognition plaque, the website says. The school will receive up to $250 for a school-wide reception or celebration as well.
