STEM Ed Announcement: Know excellent teachers? Nominate for Presidential Teaching Award; Deadline April 1



Do you know a K-6 grade teacher who provides excellent mathematics or science
 instruction to his or her students? Then please consider nominating him or her for
 one of the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching
 (PAEMST). Anyone-researchers, parents or members of the general public-may nominate
 a K-6 grade teacher by completing the nomination form available on the PAEMST
 website (www.paemst.org<http://www.paemst.org/>). To submit a nomination, you only
 need the teacher's contact information.
 
 PAEMST is the highest honor the United States government bestows for K-12
 mathematics and science teaching. Since 1983, more than 4,400 teachers have been
 recognized for their contributions to mathematics and science education. Awardees
 serve as models for their colleagues, inspiration to their communities, and leaders
 in the improvement of mathematics and science education. Up to 108 teachers may be
 recognized each year.
 
 Presidential Awardees receive a certificate signed by the President of the United
 States; a trip for two to Washington, D.C. to attend a series of recognition events,
 professional development opportunities, and policy-maker meetings; and a $10,000
 award from the National Science Foundation.
 
 The Nomination Deadline is April 1, 2016. The Application Deadline is May 1, 2016
 for teachers (K-grade 6). If you know more than one teacher deserving of this award,
 you may submit more than one nomination. Teachers may also initiate the application
 process themselves at www.paemst.org<http://www.paemst.org/>.
 
 Please consider nominating outstanding mathematics and science (including computer
 science) teachers today!
 
 Sincerely,
 Nafeesa Owens, Ph.D.
 Program Lead, PAEMST*
