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!
