Wilson received a $15,000 check from the Walton Family Foundation — which is a sponsor of the award. She is also the state's nominee for National Teacher of the Year and will spend the 2012-2013 school year working at the Department of Education as a special advisor.
Wilson has 16 years of teaching experience and has also taught in the Hamburg school district and at the University of Vermont.
