Each Monday at 9AM from now through November 7, we'll upload a new video from the finalists. Check here each week to watch teachers responding to a new question about education, then vote for your favorite educator to advance to the next round.

You can vote up to once a day. The two teachers with the fewest votes each week will be eliminated, until we have one last teacher standing.
