Teacher nominated for national PEOPLE magazine award
SALINAS, Calif. -

A local middle school teacher was one of 90 teachers nominated for PEOPLE Magazine's "All-Star Teacher Campaign."

Robin Kunysz is a sixth grade teacher at Gavilan View Middle School in Salinas and she needs your vote!     

Kunysz is one of three finalists who, if they are voted in, will represent the San Francisco Giants at the 2014 MLB All-Star game in July.

Kunysz said she was surprised to learn one of her colleagues nominated her for the national campaign called "Target Presents People All-Star Teachers."

It recognizes current or retired teachers who make an impact in their community.

"First I would be shocked...this just what I do and kind of what I am too...I'm very proud of being a teacher and if I win...it would be hilarious," said Kunsyz on the thought of winning the whole thing.

Iif she is voted to represent the Giants, she will be one of the 30 to possibly be featured in PEOPLE Magazine!'  The other two finalists in northern California are Kerri Baetkey of Kentfield and Tracy Ruiz of Vacaville.

You can vote for Robin through June 29th.
