Westchester Teacher Selected as State Finalist for the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching

The Georgia state selection committee for the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) program has selected Ms. Stacey Foster from Westchester Elementary School as a 2018 state-level finalist for K-6th-grade teachers of mathematics. State-level finalists will be honored at the State Superintendent’s Excellence in Achievement Program in October.

Up to three state-level finalists are forwarded to a national selection committee composed of mathematics educators, researchers, district officials, and past awardees who will meet to select the PAEMST awardees at the national level. The teachers chosen to be Presidential Awardees will be notified by the White House, honored at various ceremonies in Washington, D.C., and will receive $10,000 from the National Science Foundation.

Please extend your heartiest personal congratulations to Ms. Foster on having been selected for this prestigious honor in recognition of truly outstanding teaching and leadership in mathematics.
