Sean McComb, an eight-year educator from Patapsco High School and Center for the Arts whose difficult childhood propelled him to find the inspiration to teach, is the 2014 National Teacher of the Year.

McComb, 30, was one of four finalists for becoming the nation's top teacher after being named Maryland's Teacher of the Year last October and Baltimore County's Teacher of the Year on May 6 last year.

"As a teacher, I have always found my validation in my students first – their learning, their engagement in our work and in their words of appreciation," McComb said. "But personally, this is an incredible validation for each time I made a choice to do a little more for a student."

President Barack Obama will introduce McComb as the 64th National Teacher of the Year during a White House ceremony at 2 p.m. on Thursday, May 1. The Joppa resident is the third Maryland teacher since 2006 to win the national honor and the first in Baltimore County history.
