Presidential Awards for Excellence
The Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) is considered the nation’s highest honor in mathematics and science teaching in the United States.
The winner of the 2008 Presidential Award for Mathematics Teaching is Kimberly Spencer of Yarmouth Elementary School. Congratulations!
We are pleased to announce that the recognition activities for the Presidential Awards program will be held January 4 through January 7, 2010, in Washington, DC. The National Science Foundation (NSF) will be honoring highly qualified Mathematics and Science teachers of grades K- 6.
This year’s (2010) awards are limited to teachers of mathematics and science kindergarten through grade 6. Nominees must be full-time employees of the school or school district. Teachers can self-nominate for this award, but your nomination of a high-quality math or science teacher is one way of saying, “we recognize and appreciate what you do.”
