pres sealI am proud and excited to be named a recipient of the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching!

The Presidential Award is the highest honor presented by the federal government for K-12 mathematics and science teaching.  The awards are administered by the National Science Foundation on behalf of the White House and the Office of Science and Technology Policy.  A rigorous application process begins at the state level, and state finalists are evaluated by scientists and educators at the national level.

This is a tremendous individual honor, but it is also a testament to the collaboration and support of many wonderful colleagues across schools and professional organizations who continually help me grow and evolve as a teacher.  And to the students who challenge me every day to better challenge them.  And most importantly, to the unending support I receive at home, from my family.

Recipients of the Presidential Award gather in Washington, D.C. for a series of celebratory and professional events.  I’m looking forward to meeting a lot of inspiring teachers, and perhaps, the President!
