Candace Crothers of Glenwood Elementary Named Finalist for NC Presidential Award

Congratulations to Candace Crothers of Glenwood Elementary. She was recently selected as one of three elementary mathematics finalists for the 2016 North Carolina Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST).

The PAEMST Awards are the highest honor bestowed by the United States government specifically for K-12 mathematics and science teaching. The program, administered by the National Science Foundation (NSF) on behalf of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, recognizes outstanding K-12 science and mathematics teachers from across the country for their contributions to the teaching and learning of mathematics and science.

A panel of distinguished scientists, mathematicians, and educators will now select one mathematics teacher and one science teacher from North Carolina to receive the award. Each will receive a $10,000 award and a trip to Washington, D.C. to attend the National Awards Recognition Program.

Congratulations, Candace!
