WASHINGTON — Eduardo Sevilla, a teacher at Loudoun County’s Middleburg Academy, not only teaches math, he celebrates it.

“It is a language that tells stories,” he says on his Middleburg teacher bio. “It is a philosophy of how to think and develop.”

That’s nice and all, but can it help someone win something of major importance, like The Video Daily Double?

The D.C. area finds out Tuesday evening when Sevilla goes up against two other teachers as part of the “Jeopardy!” teachers tournament.

Sevilla, who has degrees from both the University of Virginia and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, competed against a French/English teacher and a choir teacher for a shot at a $100,000 grand prize.

And just for competing, Sevilla received a $2,500 educational grant, which Sevilla told InsideNova.com will go toward an academy STEAM initiative.

See how Sevilla fared at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday on WJLA (Channel 7).
