Tuesday, February 1, 2011, 10:17 am

Do you know a great Montana science or math teacher, teaching in grades 7-12, with five or more years of professional teaching experience prior to the 2010-11 school year?

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

Would that person mind receiving 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 to the questions above, please consider taking a few minutes to nominate that person for the 2011 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.

To nominate a teacher for the award simply go to the following website and fill out the short form.

Those nominated will be contacted and asked to put together a formal application. Remember, regardless of whether a teacher pursues the award or not, it is always a nice recognition in and of itself to be nominated.
