Do you know a great Montana science or math teacher, teaching in grades K-6, with 5 or more years of professional teaching experience?


Do you think that person should get some special recognition for their expertise and dedication to student learning?


Would that person like to receive a $10,000 award from the National Science Foundation, along with an expenses-paid trip to DC to meet with other awardees and attend math and science professional development opportunities?


If your answer is yes, please take a few minutes to nominate that person for the 2013 Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST).  In addition, please share this important nomination information with your staff and colleagues and encourage them to make nominations as well.
