VIRGINIA BEACH--A Princess Anne High School teacher got national attention today when he was nominated for a Top Teacher Award on the Kelly and Michael Show.

Rick Zano is a World History teacher that goes out of his way to motivate his students. Today he dressed in costume in an effort to dramatize European Imperialism in Japan.

Zano was nominated by colleague Kim Love. Zano says he had no idea that his name and face was announced on national TV until somebody emailed him.

You can vote for Zano until Monday. The top five winners will be announced on Tuesday.
