BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - The woman named Alabama's Teacher of the Year in 2014 is resigning from Birmingham City Schools.

Ann Marie Corgill started this school year at Oliver Elementary School teaching second grade, but was moved to a fifth-grade classroom.

The Alabama Department of Education says Corgill is only certified to teach primary school through third grade students.

The Birmingham City Schools spokesperson says they're working through the situation and have no further comment.

Corgill taught fourth grade at Cherokee Bend Elementary School from 2012 to 2014. Previously, she taught English for three years at Hewitt-Trussville Middle School and also worked in the New York Public School System.

After Corgill was given the Teacher of the Year award in May 2014, State School Superintendent Tommy Bice said she was "stellar at everything she does."
