Henry Bender’s wife loves him so much she wanted him to be Teacher of the Year at Ocean City High School. So Karen Bender, also a teacher there, encouraged others to vote for her husband. She herself voted for him.
That vote won Henry the title — briefly.
After the selection committee realized what the missus had done, the Press of Atlantic City reports, a new committee was formed and Mr. Bender was out.
So, Ocean City High School’s Teacher of the Year is Andrew Breckenridge. He teaches physics, which probably means he hears a lot of grumbling from students.
As for the grumblings from the Benders, he said: “Honestly, I don’t want to comment on the whole deal. It’s ridiculous.”
