A Hudson Valley teacher is once again a Jeopardy! champion and is now moving on to the finals.

From May 6 through May 17, Jeopardy! is airing its Teachers Tournament. 15 educators from across the country are battling for a $100,000 grand prize and a spot in Tournament of Champions.

Last week,  Francois Barcomb of New Paltz reached the Teachers Tournament semi-finals after he battled two other teachers and came out victorious, finishing with $20,600. 

Tuesday night, the Hendrick Hudson physics teacher won again, earning him a spot in Friday's final. Barcom finished with $18,801 defeating a chemistry teacher from Austin, TX and an English teacher from Stamford, CT.

Barcomb needed to correctly answer the Final Jeopardy to claim his victory.
