Belinder teacher Larry Martin advances to finals of Jeopardy Teachers Tournament

Larry Martin was all smiles at the conclusion of the airing of Wednesday’s Jeopardy. He’s one of three contestants who will appear in the Teachers Tournament finals starting today.

Belinder second grade teacher Larry Martin is one of three contestants who will have their fingers on the clicker in the Jeopardy Teachers Tournament two-day final that starts today.

Martin advanced to the semi-finals with a big win in the opening round episode that aired last Wednesday — a victory he got to watch with hundreds of Belinder students, parents and teachers backed into the school gym. The gym was full again yesterday as Martin’s fans watched him cruise to another victory, finishing the day with $25,400 to competitors Jake Allen and Katherine Saxby’s $3,600 and $200, respectively.
