THE DISNEY CHANNEL AND PARAGON CABLE HONOR MINNEAPOLIS TEACHER DURING
 'THE WALT DISNEY COMPANY PRESENTS THE AMERICAN TEACHER AWARDS'
 BURBANK, Calif., Nov. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Local educator Colleen Mary Callahan of North High School in Minneapolis will be honored along with 35 educators from around the nation on Sunday, Nov. 24 at 6 p.m. (CST), Ch. 50, during the second annual presentation of the Emmy Award-winning "Walt Disney Company Presents the American Teacher Awards" premiering live on The Magical World of Disney.
 The program honors 36 teachers who were selected from hundreds of applications by a selection committee made up of representatives from national education organizations. The Center for Civic Education assisted in the organization of the selection committee, the development of the selection criteria and the administration of the selection process.
 The committee selected three teachers in each of the following 12 subject categories: Early Childhood, English, Foreign Language/ESL, General Elementary, Performing Arts, Science, Visual Arts, Mathematics, Physical Education and Health, Social Studies, Vocational/Technical Education and Athletic Coach.
 Mary Callahan is being honored in the Performing Arts category. Video profiles will be presented of all of the 36 teachers and Callahan's class will perform during the program.
 One teacher in each of the twelve subject categories, again chosen by the selection committee, will receive an award as the outstanding teacher in his or her field. At the conclusion of the show, the 36 teachers themselves, by secret ballot under the supervision of Price Waterhouse, will select one of these 12 teachers to be the Outstanding Teacher of 1991.
 In addition to being honored as one of this country's leading elementary and secondary school teachers, each of the 36 teachers will receive a cash honorarium. The schools of the 12 outstanding subject category honorees and that of the Outstanding Teacher of 1991 will also receive cash honoraria, and the Outstanding Teacher of 1991 will receive an additional cash prize.
 "The American Teacher Awards," a Smith-Hemion production for THE DISNEY CHANNEL, will be telecast live from the historic Pantages Theatre in Hollywood.
