Neil Johnson, who recently retired from Shakopee High School after teaching for 39-years, was chosen to represent the Minnesota Twins at the major league baseball All-Star Game. Thousands of teachers across the country were nominated, but each major league team could have only one teacher representative. Johnson has been very involved during his nearly four decades at Shakopee, teaching math, and coaching both softball and girl's basketball. When asked him about his reaction, he said, "A big thank you to everyone who took time to vote for me. It hasn't quite sunk in yet. It is a very overwhelming honor."
