ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- A central Florida language arts teacher has been named Florida's 2014 Teach of the Year.
    
Dorina Sackman, of Westridge Middle School in Orange County, was announced as the winner in Orlando Thursday night at the Hard Rock Live at Universal Studios.
    
Sackman and four other finalists were selected in May from among 72 school district nominees: Nancy Smith, of Citrus High School in Citrus County; Apryl Shackelford, of Northwestern Middle School in Duval County; Patricia Gair, of Cypress Lake High School in Lee County; and Katrin Rudge, of Riverview High School in Sarasota County.
    
Sackman will receive a $10,000 grant funded by the Macy's Foundation, along with an all-expense paid trip for four to New York City to attend the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
