Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching
The Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) has been given to outstanding educators since 1983. Awardees serve as models for their colleagues, inspiration to their communities, and leaders in the improvement of mathematics and science education.
More than 4,100 teachers have been recognized for their contributions in the classroom and to their profession. If you know great teachers, you are encouraged to nominate them to join this prestigious network of professionals.
