Congratulations to Robin Anderson, math teacher at Andover Middle School, for being named a state finalist in the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching.
The PAEMST is the highest recognition that a K-12 STEM teacher can receive for outstanding teaching in the United States. Anderson now will advance to compete at the national level, where up to 108 teachers are recognized each year.
In nominating Anderson, Stacey Ryan, an AMS parent and instructional coach, wrote: “Robin is an outstanding math teacher who embodies the characteristics of a PAEMST recipient. She teaches math with a high level of rigor, while thoughtfully equipping her students with all the skills, confidence and strategies to be successful.”
Presidential Awardees receive a certificate signed by the President, a trip to Washington, D.C., for recognition and professional development; and a $10,000 award from the National Science Foundation.
