The Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) are the nation's highest honors for teachers of mathematics and science (including computer science). Awardees serve as models for their colleagues, inspiration to their communities, and leaders in the improvement of mathematics and science education.
This year's awards will honor mathematics and science (including computer science) teachers working in grades 7-12. Nominations close on April 1, 2017.
John Olson, Science Specialist at the Minnesota Department of Education, says "Doing the application provides growth from reflecting on your teaching and there is a potential of $10,000 plus leadership opportunities. Nominate yourself or a colleague." www.paemst.org
