West Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - For the second year in a row, a West Fargo school district teacher was named “North Dakota Teacher of the Year.”

Aaron Knodel, an English teacher at West Fargo High School, received the honor at the school gymnasium Friday.

Governor Jack Dalrymple presented the award.

Knodel's colleagues say he has a great rapport with students and other teachers.

Three other finalists were also recognized.

Aaron Knodel- Teacher of the Year: "I've had the pleasure of meeting these finalists. It would take you about three seconds to determine that you would be an incredibly fortunate student to be in any of their classes. It is deeply humbling to receive the award knowing these finalists who are up here with me."

Last year, Cheney Middle School teacher Andrea Noonan won the award.
